There is surely more to come from Shastye, who is selected as the best alternative to Ribblesdale third Asawer, who can also be expected to improve as this will be only the fourth start of her career. Art Eyes also has bits and pieces of form that gives her a chance and she too is worth monitoring in the betting market. Light Of Morn is another not to underestimate, as she shaped nicely last season and is starts her four-year-old career open to further progress. Asawer will no doubt be a popular choice after running well above expectations at York last month. The Darshaan filly will be expected to deliver the goods if she is expected to go back to the Knavesmire for the Yorkshire Oaks next month. However, that is likely to be reflected in her price and the odds will probably be too restricting for many. Therefore, it may be worth chancing Shastye after her solid run behind Playful Act at Haydock at the start of this month. That effort leaves John Gosden's charge with every chance of causing an upset and she looks good value here.
