Verdict

Majestic Queen created a 33/1 shock when beating Almalekiah over 7f here last month and the runner-up franked the form in easy fashion at Wolverhampton. However, a mark of 80 looks tough. HARMONIC NOTE is handed the vote on her first start on Polytrack as her overall form on testing ground looks strong enough while Caged Lightning ran his best race so far over the C&D three weeks ago when Rose Garden was over 5l behind. Rontique has only raced on ground with plenty of give but Truly Madly finished runner-up over 5f here in May and hasn't looked at ease on very soft ground subsequently. Truly Delightful is another making her all-weather debut and she's been confined to racing in testing conditIons all summer so it will be interesting to see how she handles the surface.
