Verdict

Better The Devil and BUBBLY SPLASH finished first and third on debut at Hamilton last month with over 4l between the pair. The Watson colt has since been well beaten at Royal Ascot and it would not surprise if the O'Meara inmate turns the form around as he looked less forward than the topweight and is now 9lb better off at the weights. Fleeting Princess was also well beaten but not disgraced at Royal Ascot on her first start for Charles Hills and has every chance here returned to calmer waters, having scored over course and distance on her debut back in April. And look out also for Dreamy Rascal who shaped nicely on debut at Windsor for the Hannon team.
