Verdict

Despite her defeat by stable companion Graphic at Salisbury, Esentepe is sure to attract support again as her fourth in the Chesham at Royal Ascot would obviously give her an outstanding chance. However, BAYLEYF also ran well at the Royal fixture when a staying-on seventh behind Frederick Engels in the Windsor Castle Stakes and the extra furlong here should prove ideal. He gets the vote though Chapter Seven will have come on for his run at Doncaster and this half-brother to eight winners is expected to do much better. Possibly was just making headway on her debut at Newmarket when impeded and eased so is another who should be kept on the right side.
