    Verdict

    GRETCHEN (NAP) finished well ahead of Pandora when fifth in the Ribblesdale at Royal Ascot. Never a factor in the Irish Oaks subsequently, John Gosden's filly should find this company much less taxing and still has time on her side. Endless Time probably deserves her chance in this higher grade having run up a sequence in maidens and handicaps but has a few pounds to find to extend her winning run. Mikel Delzangles' Sahrawi and Sir Michael Stoute's Asyad look the pick of the older fillies, though Spacelab showed a nice turn of foot last time at Newbury.
