Verdict

Tigresse Bleue won at Huntingdon and Chepstow last month but has gone up 9lb in the weights and is taking on better opposition today. Mrs Peachey's run behind Highland Retreat at Wincanton has been franked and Tom Bellamy's claim should help the top weight get competitive but we were quite impressed with SCHOLASTICA at Ascot and Tom Symonds' mare can follow up. She only beat Top Totti by a length and some would argue that the runner-up, who was hampered on the run-in, should reverse the form on 2lb better terms but the winner appeared to have something left in the locker. Fourth-placed Lady Kathleen is also better off at the weights but was beaten more than 10 lengths. Alder Mairi isn't without a chance but In By Midnight may struggle to confirm Worcester running in October with Benefique Royale.
