WINNING EXPRESS looks the one to beat back in Listed company. The runner-up in last season's Cheveley Park, Ed McMahon's filly finished only two lengths behind Sky Lantern in the 1000 Guineas at Newmarket last month and should be winning this on that form. Victrix Ludorum went close to landing a Listed event at Windsor last time and makes more appeal than German 1000 Guineas third Senafe and Exactement, beaten six lengths in the Irish Guineas on her latest start. Sorella Bella has proved mostly disappointing this year after last season's promising efforts and the remainder have plenty to find on today's terms.
