Verdict

Firm ground has robbed the race of some classy entries but the choice is ALBASHARAH who wins the title of the unluckiest horse to run at Royal Ascot 2013. She was consistently denied a run in the Listed Wolferton Handicap before crossing the line still on the bridle in finishing fifth. She steps up to 1m4f for the first time and is taken to gain very decent compensation for that Ascot reversal. Moment In Time stepped up on previous efforts when outbattling Nymphea to land a course and distance success in the Pinnacle Stakes last time, whilst Midnight Soprano arrives on the back of a game success in Cork's Group 3 Noblesse Stakes. Gallipot and Wannabe Loved cannot be ruled out for John Gosden whilst Banoffee, seventh in The Oaks, is left as the sole filly to fly the three-year-old flag.
