Verdict

Breeding suggests a couple of these will improve for the longer trip and JOYFUL FRIEND is one of them. She was unfancied when only sixth behind her more strongly-fancied stablemate, Betimes, over 7f here on her debut, but John Gosden's filly is preferred to Artful Rogue, a runner-up over a mile here last time. Timeless War is another to consider having shown a big improvement when third on his latest start and it will be no surprise if Lil Rockerfeller steps up from a modest debut effort at Kempton.
