MANDERLEY beat a subsequent winner as she liked when landing the odds in a Nottingham maiden but is better judged on her earlier fourth in the 1000 Guineas here. A repeat of that form would make her hard to beat and she gets the nod. Evita Peron ran well in the German 1000 Guineas and looks a threat but the likes of Along Again, Wedding Ring and Dutch Courage need to step up on their recent efforts to figure. Maiden winner Swift Campaign is the least exposed and it would be no surprise to see her improve past Musicora, Penny Drops and Alumina.
