Verdict

Golden Nun gets the confident vote here and should prevail at the main expense of Ruby Rocket and Tante Rose. The filly from the Tim Easterby yard confirmed her well-being when defeating Forever Phoenix in a Listed race at Nottingham. She is drawn well here and with conditions to suit looks the one to be on. Ruby Rocket is a course and distance winner but she disappointed last time at Newbury when down the field behind Majestic Desert. She will be suited by the return to 6 furlongs and she can be considered if you are prepared to forgive her for that recent Newbury effort. Tante Rose did not get much luck in running in a Group 2 race at Newmarket last time when down the field behind Just James. She could potentially go very well here and it would be a surprise if she were not able to make the frame at the finish. Unshooda is the other who might be worth considering as she might be capable of running on into a place, but we are happy to stick with Golden Nun as our ideal of the winner.
