Richard Hannon bids for a fourth straight win in this contest and OUR QUEENIE looks like providing it. She opened her account with a victory at Goodwood in May and that form looks even better now as fifth-placed Talksalot has since won at Kempton. The latter will do well to reverse running despite a 7lb claimer taking over the reins and Secret Kode looks a bigger threat. She showed promise in a Newbury maiden on her debut when second to Kendal Mint and should figure with normal progress.
