Verdict

Aidan O’Brien won this three times in a row before missing out last year. Hermosa looks to have strong claims having won a Group 3 over 7f at Naas last time and finishing third in the Group 1 Moyglare Stud at the Curragh before that when ahead of stablemate Zagitova and the Godolphin filly Beyond Reason. Iridessa finished in front of the Ballydoyle filly earlier but could only manage third on fast going at Leopardstown last time while Antonia De Vega won a maiden before landing the Group 3 Prestige Stakes over 7f at Goodwood and is preferred to Layaleena and the unbeaten Shambolic, who defied a penalty in novice company over a mile at Ascot last month. But PRETTY POLLYANNA has won at the highest level over 6f with victory in the Prix Morny at Deauville and her pedigree suggests this longer trip should be within her compass. A chance is taken Michael Bell’s filly lasts home and she gets the vote.
