The form of the Windsor novice in which COMPANY MINX went close last month is working out well and, with further progress likely now pitched into a handicap, she gets the nod off a potentially handy opening mark. Special Secret was hot on the heels of the selection at Windsor, but bigger threats may be posed by her stablemate Graceful Magic, Insania and top-weight Stylistique.
Four-year-old's have won 7 of the last 10 renewals of this race and ENBIHAAR is taken to uphold that tradition. She was most impressive when storming clear in the Lillie Langtry at Glorious Goodwood and a reproduction of that would make her hard to beat, for all that conceding weight to improving 3-y-o Dame Malliot will not be by any means easy. Delphinia is best of the rest.
While his lack of experience in a contest of this nature is a concern, KING'S LYNN shaped with a great deal of promise on his introduction at Windsor and he could be something of a surprise package. Glasvegas looks a big danger on the back of his cracking effort at Royal Ascot, while Harpocrates, Repartee and Unforgetable all bring decent Group-race form to the table, too.
Several potentially smart fillies on show and CLOAK OF SPIRITS could be the pick of them. She was impressive on debut at Ascot and is marginally preferred to West End Girl, who raised her game when landing a Group 3 contest at Newmarket and, on a line through the third home there, Dark Lady, she has a bit in hand of Boomer. Run Wild, Powerful Breeze and Irish raider Passion are others to consider.
