Verdict

ROODEE QUEEN is worth sticking with until beaten. She landed her fifth straight victory when scoring at Epsom last time and, though only a narrow margin winner, the runner-up never looked like going past. Milton Bradley's filly is just 1lb higher today with her apprentice's claim taken into consideration. Fast Shot is another on the up and up and he bids for his hat trick after wins at Catterick and Doncaster, but Azzurra Du Caprio was all out to win at Doncaster and held an engagement at Ascot yesterday. Handicap debutant Highland Colori may prove best of the remainder.
