Richard Fahey and Paul Hanagan will be looking for another winning combination with Pandoro De Lago their option for the opening race. She showed some inexperience on her debut run and bought for 130,000 guineas a lot more is expected of the filly. She has interesting entries at Newmarket in the future. Galloping Queen hasn't progressed quite as well as connections would have liked following a decent enough fourth in the Balanchine Stakes at the Curragh in June, but against this opposition she should be a big danger. NAJOUM is the pick after a promising Polytrack debut at Kempton. The third in that race has placed again since whilst the fourth in the contest has gone on to score twice. Therefore we side with the Godolphin entry here.
