Making Eyes beat Reckoning a short-head at Newcastle in June with Prussian back in fifth. But the later is fancied to come out best in today's testing ground, while Cushion will also handle the going and has every chance on today's terms. COCKTAIL QUEEN has a bit to find at the weights with some of these but was having her first race since May when failing to last home in the St Simon Stakes over 1m4f at Newbury. David Elsworth's filly is worth another chance in this. Jabhaat looks likely to come up short once again while Yojojo and Amulet have plenty to do in this better company. The likes of Bonanza Creek, Empress Adelaide and Princess Loulou are all open to further progress and worth noting for any support.
