Verdict

RYTHMIC posted an impressive performance to land her maiden over a mile at Doncaster last time. The Godolphin filly showed a good turn of foot to win going away and there should be more to come. Basantee has been keeping good company and has claims on her best form in Listed races, while Zingana had little chance in the Sweet Solera last time, but had popped up at massive odds on her debut at Newbury before that. Scarlet Whispers and Aliante have scope for improvement on their handicap debuts, but Kempton winner Royal Majestic has a bit to find to figure.
