Verdict

The German raider Gracia Directa is a regular visitor to these shores nowadays and picked up this prize last year. She also ran really well at Haydock last time when finishing ahead of Ladies Are Forever, who won this in 2011, and Dominik Moser's mare has every chance once again. Body And Soul won a competitive handicap over track and trip last month and looks a real threat ahead of Newmarket conditions race winner City Girl, while March beat Sandreamer and Sound Of Guns when second in a Listed sprint at Sandown last time and can also figure. Last season's Cheveley Park heroine, ROSDHU QUEEN, will find this easier than the Group 1 Diamond Jubilee at Ascot where she finished fifth. Three-year-olds have a good recent record in this contest and she gets the nod to return to winning ways.
