    Verdict

    Key Strong should take all the beating here with Forzeen and Katie Boo put forward as the principle dangers. The selection is in great heart at present and is seeking a fourth consecutive win here. She won in good style in a hot nursery at York last time when defeating Right Answer. Right Answer was subsequently not disgraced in a Group 3 race at Ascot so the form looks rock solid. Forzeen found trouble in running behind Bibury Flyer so might be worth a second chance here as he had previously shown a good level of form. Katie Boo is a nice filly who looks to be progressing well. She ran with great credit when second behind Mimi Mouse at York last time and it will be a surprise if she is not good enough to make the frame. Pro Tempore won well last time so is the other worth a second look in the market, but Key Strong looks a filly worth keeping on the right side of and as such she is taken to score.
