My Queenie may do better dropping back down in class but stablemate Whimsical makes more appeal on her latest third at Ascot. Elusive Flame looks high enough in the weights now after scoring at Newmarket in August and the same applies to Mrs Greeley who has been upped another 6lb despite not winning. Links Drive Lady has been in terrific form over 6f in lesser company while Dare To Dream had Cockney Dancer behind when third on fast ground over C&D last month. MISS WORK OF ART has failed to build on last year's promising form that included a fourth in the Cheveley Park. Dropped 10lb since returning to action, Richard Fahey's filly gets the speculative vote to rediscover her winning ways.
