Verdict

After a successful debut, Bossy Guest was beaten in a pair of Group 2's before landing a conditions event at Newmarket. That sort of form should get him into the frame. Izzthatright has progressed from a seller to landing two nurseries and deserves this step-up in grade, especially after winning by 7l at Catterick. EXPLOSIVE LADY (NAP) made a sparkling debut at Nottingham and attracted some support in a Group 3 at Ascot. She couldn't quite cope with the front pair but the fourth, who had won her previous race, has scored again so the form looks strong enough for this. Dark Reckoning has really found her form and is better off with Prince Bonnaire despite beating him over this track and trip last weekend. Adulation didn't appear to enjoy the soft ground when disappointing in a Listed contest in France after an easy victory at Catterick.
