Verdict

MOST IMPROVED has his first start for Ballydoyle and is the class act in this. He was hard to catch right as a three-year-old but did win the St James's Palace Stakes at Royal Ascot and is likely to have benefited from another winter. Aidan O'Brien also runs Flying The Flag who was sixth in the 2000 Guineas and eighth in the Epsom Derby. He'll expose any chinks in his older stable companion's armour while Aloof won a Group 3 over 1m1f at Gowran last year and shouldn't be ignored. Uleavemebreathless ran in the 1000 Guineas but was well beaten and never figured in a fillies' handicap at Ascot last week.
