NYALETI would be a short price on these terms if this was over 6f and a chance is taken Mark Johnston’s filly stays today’s longer trip. She romped home in the Princess Margaret at Ascot before struggling in the Group 1 Prix Morny and also beat Billesdon Brook earlier in the year. The latter went on the win the Prestige Stakes at Goodwood where she beat Miss Bar Beach but had earlier finished third behind Tajaanus, who landed the Sweet Solara at Newmarket on her latest start. Sizzling took her time to win a maiden but did so at Tipperary a fortnight ago and it would be no surprise to see further progress from the Ballydoyle filly while Laurens ran well in a Group 3 in France last time but Dark Rose Angel and She Believes have plenty to prove at this level.
