Verdict

Aidan O'Brien has won five of the last nine including with Tapestry a year ago. He has three representatives this time and Joseph's presence on last Sunday's Dundalk maiden winner Qualify is significant as there must be much more expected from her. Roger Varian sends TIGRILLA (NAP) from Newmarket and the Deauville Listed winner can prove up to this class. She enjoyed the soft ground in France and any rain would aid her cause but she's starting to look very useful. Beach Belle followed her Listed victory with a fair run behind Dick Whittington in the Group One Phoenix Stakes over six furlongs here and is an obvious threat while Jeanne Girl was staying on strongly behind I Am Beautiful over six furlongs here last time and will be ideally suited by this trip.
