Verdict

Crystal Capella came right away from her rivals when winning the Princess Of Wales's Stakes on her latest start and looks to be improving with age. But she has been found wanting at this level in the past and that may be the case again today. MIDDAY has won the last two running of this and can make it three on the spin despite being a little below form behind Misty For Me for Sir Henry Cecil in the Pretty Polly at the Curragh last time. It was no surprise that Snow Fairy couldn't match strides with So You Think and Workforce over 1m2f in the Eclipse and she may also struggle for pace against some of these.
