Verdict

Lyric Of Light created a favourable impression on her debut in a Newmarket maiden, while the runner-up has already franked the form of Fallen For You's success at the same track in July. But it will probably take a smart performance to lower the colours of REGAL REALM here. Jeremy Noseda's filly would probably have remained unbeaten had she not strayed off a straight line at Ascot in July. She made amends for that narrow defeat by quickening well on tacky ground to win a Group 3 at Goodwood on her latest start and, being from the same family as high-class miler Shaadi, should have no problem now with the extra furlong. Samitar had Switcher behind in the Albany Stakes at Ascot but she was a little disappointing at Newmarket last time and will have her stamina tested in this.
