Verdict

Sir Michael Stoute won this a year ago with Dank and will be hoping MANGO DIVA can follow suit. She came to Ireland to land a Group 3 last September then followed a promising reappearance in the Middleton Stakes at York with an unlucky run when carrying a penalty in a Group 3 at Epsom. She can make amends though any one of her half-dozen rivals could spoil the party. Karl Burke's Odeliz finished in front of her at York and Epsom though doesn't have her scope nor does Peace Burg, though she ran the race of her life in the Group 1 Falmouth Stakes at Newmarket last time. Wannabe Better is up to this class though yet to prove she stays the trip but the lightly-raced My Titania was going on strongly at the finish in Ascot's Coronation Stakes and looks a big threat over the extra furlong.
