SPIRIT OF BERMUDA is progressing nicely now, and with her latest win at Newmarket backed up by the timefigure, she gets the vote to complete the hat-trick. The well-bred Run To Freedom is worth another chance having been slowly into stride at Sandown last time, while Farasi Lane can give another good account with the cheekpieces retained.
MUSIC SOCIETY has been in rude health this season yet can race off a 4 lb lower mark than when going down by the narrowest of margins at York so is fancied to gain a deserved success. Royal Scimitar came home first in his group when a fine fourth at Newmarket last time and heads the list of dangers, with the hugely progressive Power Over Me and top-weight First Folio also firmly in the reckoning.
Plenty arrives with claims in a competitive nursery including low-mileage DORA PENNY. She ran really well when runner-up at Leicester 16 days ago and may have done better still if she'd have got a clearer run at things. That may well not prove her limit and she's fancied to go well. Super Sprint second Symphony Perfect, Cashew and Eternal Glory are others to consider.
MY FRANKEL was quickly back on the up when third off this mark in the Old Newton Cup at Haydock 4 weeks ago, shaping as if this longer trip will suit, so this low-mileage 4-y-o could be the answer. Aaddeey caught the eye in the John Smith's Cup at York and is another who should benefit from this extra distance, while Prince Alex had excuses at Newmarket and remains of interest.
An intriguing listed event in which Charlie Appleby's upwardly-mobile SAYYIDA is fancied to take this step up in class in her stride. Portfolio is another filly very much going the right way and she rates the main threat in her own hat-trick attempt, although Roger Varian's Oaks fourth Save A Forest seems sure to make her presence felt too now eased in grade.
WONDERFUL TONIGHT developed into a very smart filly towards the end of last season and picked up where she left off to land the Group 2 Hardwicke at the Royal Meeting last month, really impressing in how she took control of the race. Any further easing in the ground will help and she's the one to beat. Albaflora, back up in trip, and 3-y-o Divinely may be the pair to take the minor money.
William Haggas appears to have a cracking contender in HURRICANE IVOR. He’s a sprinter on the rise and was probably unlucky not to follow up his Sandown success at Ascot when drawn on the wrong side, a performance strongly suggesting he's ahead of his mark. Fresh ran a screamer in the Wokingham and is second choice, with Great Ambassador interesting at longer odds.
