Verdict

Most of these have entries in the top fillies races with the exception of Likelihood. Which is surprising given the Gosden yard won this with subsequent Group 1 heroine Winsili last year and the high-class Izzy Top in 2011. Hadaatha and Inchila are both a big price for the Oaks at present but that will change if either of the maiden winners land this while Luca Cumani must consider Volume capable of much better as she was beaten in a handicap on her reappearance. A sister to Fame And Glory, Sandown fourth Grace And Favour will no doubt improve while Lahinch Classics represents Ireland after winning a maiden at Dundalk. Lamar wasn't disgraced in the 1000 Guineas despite starting at 100/1, while SOUND REFLECTION ran well in September's Fillies' Mile at Newmarket. Rated 100 with a recent outing under her belt, it's up to the others to improve past the Godolphin filly in this.
