CITY IMAGE took a while to get organised in a Listed race over C&D last month but was well on top of Sandreamer at the line. She's still on the upgrade and can take the step up in class in her stride to keep her unbeaten record intact. Agent Allison has to be a danger on her second to the impressive Newfangled in the Albany Stakes at Royal Ascot and she should again beat third Premier Steps. Unbeaten Irish filly Sendmylovetorose is also respected having beaten the strongly-fancied True Verdict in a Group 3 at The Curragh on her second start while Lovely Pass was third in the Chesham, though that was over 7f and the form doesn't look that strong. Jadanna won at Pontefact and Beverley before finishing fifth in the Queen Mary and should be suited by the longer trip. She looks the pick of the remainder.
