Verdict

Alnawiyah may need more time judged on her two runs to date but Cushion looks as though she's getting the hang of things on her third at Goodwood and she has the beating of Auction on that run. Downhill Dancer is a half-sister to Crowded House but she's been disappointing so far while July Waits is unlikely to come into her own until next year. KALISPELL is a full sister to middle-distance winner Samaaha and closely related to the top-class Mamool. Mahmood Al Zarooni won this year last year and his Singspiel filly can repeat the trick, though it will be worth keeping a close eye on Sir Michael Stoute's Elik who is a full sister to a 1m juvenile winner in France and cost 240,000gns. Permeate is another newcomer with a potentially bright future.
