Verdict

As Newmarket maidens go, this doesn't look the strongest of contests and it would be no surprise if newcomers Kai and Willies Wonder were to figure prominently. Chapellerie was second to Dream Writer at Newbury two weeks ago and will be fancied to go one better here, but Money Never Sleeps was last of five here on his debut and Elusive Flame disappointed at Windsor earlier this month. Thewinningmachine couldn't land the odds in a weak race at Beverley last time so a tentative vote is given to POLICE FORCE, who shaped as though a drop to 6f would suit when fading out of contention over 7f at Ascot last month. Fareedha, who is a half-sister to four winners, may be best of the rest.
