Cape Islay is penalised for winning at Epsom but she scored by five lengths and could still have a say in the finish. She’s preferred to stablemate and newcomer Dark Delight but AIR FORCE AMY gets the vote. The latter will need some luck in-running drawn out wide but a debut third at Ascot behind a horse rated 93 is the best form on offer and she’s taken to open her account. Mot Juste showed no progress last time but may do so today stepping up in distance and the same comment applies to Olivia R, placed over 6f at Thirsk recently. Katiejay was a well beaten third here at the start of the month but may prove best of the rest.
