Dank tries her luck in pattern race company after landing an Ascot handicap in good style two weeks ago. She must go on the short-list while Irish History was only beaten five lengths in the Group 1 Falmouth Stakes at Newmarket last month having finished third in the Coronation Stakes at Royal Ascot previously. She's probably the pick on form but Tom Dascombe appears to have coaxed RHYTHM OF LIGHT back to her best judged on her victory in a conditions race here three weeks ago and she may well make a race of it with the three-year-olds. Ladys First has already gone close in Listed company this year and looks the pick of the remainder.
