Verdict

John Gosden isn't one to tilt at windmills so it's interesting to see Lingfield maiden winner Phiz lining up in this Group 2. Epsom Oaks third The Lark disappointed at Saint-Cloud next time but must have a chance here if she stays. Wadaa's stamina isn't in doubt, but she may not have the pace to live with some of these. Alta Lilea has already had 11 starts this year and turned in a shocker at Chester last time when behind Bite Of The Cherry. But she did finish ahead of Jathabah and Jehannedarc in a Group 3 earlier so can't be discounted. SEAL OF APPROVAL met trouble in-running in a Listed race at Newbury last month but quickened nicely once a gap appeared and was value for more than the neck by which she beat Songbird. She's a late developer and can step up again to complete her hat-trick with Coquet preferred to Saint Hilary of the others.
