Verdict

Rather a messy race where a reluctant vote goes to QELAAN ahead of Zaaqya who runs in the same colours with Presbyterian Nun another that has a squeak. Dolly Penrose hasn't run over this trip since the fourth run of her career and hasn't given the impression that she's been crying out for a drop back whilst there are doubts about the ability of Featherweight, Finney Hill and Fanditha to see out a truly run twelve furlongs. Teeky won over this trip on the July course but disappointed at Kempton when last in action whilst Hollow Green appears to be paying the price for a good run earlier in the season and has something to find with the selection on their running at Goodwood. Presbyterian Nun is tried in blinkers which may bring about some improvement with Ryan Moore a positive and profitable booking for the yard. She's not too badly handicapped but has only a maiden win to her name so it may be best to concentrate on the Hamdan Al Maktoum owned runners. Zaaqya has looked a little unlucky in running on a couple of occasions but the pick of her efforts read well in the context of this race and she merits respect despite being overlooked by Richard Hills. However, we think that he may have got it right in siding with a filly who may just have been unfortunate to bump into a progressive individual last time. She had been progressing well prior to that so we'll side with Qelaan as well.
