Betting

Forecast

Light Blush (15/8), Walk In Marrakesh (2/1), Romsey (7/1), Ursulina (7/1), Rhea (9/1), West End Girl (9/1)

Verdict

Four of these made winning debuts though Ursulina came up well short in Listed company at Newmarket last time. RHEA made a winning start at Haydock in May with a subsequent winner back in third. That looks stronger form than West End Girl’s success at the same track and Kevin Ryan’s filly has a Group 2 entry later in the year. Light Blush scored at Newmarket on her recent introduction but the fourth has already been beaten while Walk In Marrakesh defied a penalty to win at Ayr last time and is preferred to Romsey.
