Verdict

Sharqawiyah seemed somewhat low-key when failing to build on a cosy Nottingham success with a fourth of six behind Great Timing at Newmarket, although that could turn out to be an above-average handicap. She still merits respect but ROCK CHOIR created a strong impression when beating subsequent winner, Sunbula, by an easy 5l at Goodwood and looks a progressive filly well worth following. Wall Of Sound easily landed the odds in a poor Hamilton maiden to get off the mark but is going the right way too and rates the selection's leading rival. Invincible Cara's Newmarket win needs to be improved upon for her to figure whilst Perfect Haven is hard to assess upped 3f in trip.
