Verdict

The winner of the 1000 Guineas at Newmarket early last month, Hermosa then added the Irish version in good style when beating Pretty Pollyanna four lengths. Stablemate Just Wonderful finished further back and Aidan O’Brien’s filly will likely prove a warm order in this. But the French 1000 Guineas has also provided recent winners of this and CASTLE LADY (NAP) arrives fresh from victory in testing ground at Longchamp. The Godolphin filly finished ahead of compatriot Watch Me on that occasion and Henri-Alex Pantall’s charge is fancied to be bang there at the finish. Jubiloso has come in for support since winning a novice race at Newbury while Twist 'n' Shake takes her chance at this level having been beaten in Listed company at York. Happen is a third Ballydoyle inmate and is also upped in class after landing a Group 3 at the Curragh while Mot Juste finished well behind Hermosa at Newmarket.
