Verdict

SEA OF CLASS is the only penalised runner but she was very impressive when scoring at this level over the course and distance last month. She looks ready for a step into Group class and should take this on the way. Her stable companion Dramatic Queen also has the scope to go on to better things and is entered in next week's Ribblesdale. Gavin Cromwell doesn't waste journeys and sent Princess Yaiza to Chester for the Cheshire Oaks where she finished third behind Magic Wand and subsequent Oaks winner Forever Together with today's rival Shailene five lengths behind. She'll be thereabouts again but Herecomesthesun has failed three times at this level since scoring at Kempton.
