Verdict

A case can be made for all with EURO NIGHTMARE taken to strike for the younger brigade. Keith Dalgleish's filly takes a dramatic 5f drop in trip after an excellent run behind Royal Ascot - bound Time To Study last time, prior to which she'd proved effective over shorter trips when scoring over 9f. Crucially, she takes a drop in class of two grades now and can regain winning brackets. Saeed Bin Suroor has bigger fish to fry at Royal Ascot but Dowayla should appreciate the step-up in trip and is respected. However, the main danger could come from Coillte Cailin, absent since a winter campaign but capable of going well as she's rated 8lb lower on turf. Prying Pandora and Pernickety also have solid claims in a open contest.
