Verdict

Wesley Ward’s sprinters are no strangers to these shores and the North American trainer won this in 2016. LADY PAULINE is a half-sister to stablemate and King’s Stand heroine Lady Aurelia and romped home by a wide-margin at Keeneland on last month’s debut. Royal Ascot is on the agenda if successful here and she gets the vote. Zulu Zander followed a win in novice company with victory in a conditions race at Bath and made all on both occasions. He’s preferred to Ventura Rebel, who made a winning start at Thirsk recently while Full Verse started the shortest price of four Godolphin runners at Newmarket but finished behind the other three so more is needed here. Can't Stop Now represents last year’s winning yard and is preferred to Endowed of the newcomers.
