Verdict

Say has leading claims on her earlier second to subsequent Group 1 winner Dank but has since found the older Along Came Casey too good in a Listed contest at Gowran. Songbird was expected to remain unbeaten when sent off favourite at Newbury but came up just short and is closely matched with Cushion on that form. Coquet has been nowhere near her best so far this year while Star Lahib is progressive but facing much tougher opposition having won three times in handicaps this season. Lady Nouf was beaten a length in similar company here last month while stablemate OUR OBSESSION won over 1m2f at this track a day later. With today's longer trip likely to suit, the latter gets a speculative vote to find the necessary improvement in a tricky renewal.
