Verdict

Tight Lipped has been placed in all five starts but is the most exposed in the field and will probably find at least one too good again. My Queenie finished a promising second at Goodwood recently so it's a bit of a surprise to see Richard Hughes plump for stablemate NOT BAD FOR A BOY. The latter was beaten four lengths over 6f last time so the jockey must expect plenty of improvement back over today's longer trip. Others likely to show further progress include Frog Hollow, Daring Damsel and Zamarelle.
