Verdict

Three-year-old fillies only have a modest recent record in this but Wonderstruck has to go on the short-list this year having run a fair race in the Ribblesdale at Royal Ascot on only her third start. Cosseted represents last year's winning stable and has been in good form this year, winning handicaps at Doncaster and Chester. Alwilda and Cascading also arrive off the back of recent victories, though have a bit to find at the weights. SILK SARI finished ahead of Moment In Time in last month's Lancashire Oaks at Haydock and was ahead of Quiz Mistress at that track in May. A few showers would aid her cause but she should run her race again regardless so gets the nod.
