Verdict

Banimpire, beaten a short-head by Blue Bunting in the Irish Oaks, was well behind the winner in the Yorkshire Oaks last time and that wasn't her form. She can go well but Nahrain will need to improve again after landing a Listed contest at Sandown. Sandy's Charm was caught close home by Zinabaa at Deauville and should be better suited by the quicker ground while Epic Love didn't get the clearest of runs in a Group 2 at Deauville last time. ANNOUNCE, the only four-year-old in the field, hasn't had much racing and gained her first success at the highest level when beating Timepiece at Deauville. She'll have been primed for this and can see off the younger brigade.
