Verdict

JAMEELA GIRL impressed at Goodwood and she can see off fellow improver Millyluvstobouggie. Robert Cowell's filly still looks well-handicapped under her penalty as she only had to be pushed out with hands and heels to win a competitive nursery last week. Millyluvestobouggie has been progressing at a slightly lower level but she should relish this slower ground and is not one to take lightly, a comment that also applies to Overwhelm who drops in grade. Star Today represents a yard in great form but this blinkered contender needs to improve, although there is no Face The Problem in this line-up, whilst Master Macho and Whoateallthepius have been holding their form well, making them of slightly more interest than the grade dropper Twist Of Silver.
