Verdict

LUCKY KRISTALE boasts the highest official rating having won a Group 2 at Newmarket last month beating previous Royal Ascot winner Rizeena and today's rival Queen Catrine in the process. That form looks rock-solid and George Margarson's filly can defy a penalty and follow-up. J Wonder is unbeaten and wasn't unduly troubled to land a Newmarket nursery in good style earlier this month. She looks a genuine threat as she's yet to be tested. Merletta must be thought capable of better than she's shown so far taking on much better opposition here while collateral form leaves the likes of Reroute, Wind Fire, Alutiq and Kaiulani all needing to improve to match the selection.
