Verdict

Ladies Are Forever bids to win this for the third time after victories in 2011 and last year when Body And Soul finished well behind. But the three-year-old JOYEUSE may prove too good for her this time round. Lady Cecil's filly beat Hallelujah and Spinatrix in a Listed event at Haydock before running well again in Group 3 company at Leopardstown last month. Indignant posted her best effort so far to win a Listed contest at Salisbury and Willbeme landed a competitive handicap over track and trip in good style last time. Inyordreams finished ahead of Survived when runner-up over 5f Ayr while German raider Emerald Star won a Group 3 over 7f at Lingfield in May. She's preferred to French challenger Ice Love, who scored over the same trip on the all-weather at Chantilly earlier in the year.
