Verdict

Sorella Bella is the only one of these that doesn't have an entry in the 1000 Guineas so a few classic dreams are going to be in tatters by the end of today. Sky Lantern has a Group 1 penalty for winning the Moyglare Stud Stakes at the Curragh in September but was behind Waterway Run at the Breeders' Cup meeting in November. Winning Express was just ahead of Baileys Jubilee in the Cheveley Park but should confirm that form over this extra furlong and both have the beating of Jadanna on the form book. Light Up My Life and Reyaadah were both well beaten in the May Hill in September and drop back in distance here, though the latter did beat Nargys on debut and has more scope than Luca Cumani's filly. LADY NOUF didn't make her debut until October but impressed in the way she beat subsequent scorer Secret Gesture and the third, Desert Image, bolted up in a maiden here on her next start. Willie Haggas has her entered in the Epsom and Irish Oaks as well as the Guineas and has made no secret of the high regard in which she's held. She can keep her unbeaten record intact, though the equally unexposed Hot Snap is also worth a second look if the market speaks in her favour.
