The Coolmore-owned STRATIFICATION (NAP) found subsequent Group 3 winner Divine Image too good at Chelmsford on her debut but is entered in the Ribblesdale and this extra distance will suit. Isabella Brant should also benefit for the longer trip having run well enough at Nottingham on last year’s debut while Tamachan and Wannie Mae are likely to finish closer and Nespola can only improve. The latter’s stablemate Ela Katrina is a half-sister to the smart stayer Pallasator and The Very Moon is related to five winners while Eagle Queen and Monaafasah are other newcomers to note.
