Verdict

SHE RANKS ME hasn't raced since March but is a cut above these. She never stopped improving last year, winning four times in the process, and won't need to be at her best to take care of today's rivals. Pass The Time went close in a lower grade here a fortnight ago and could figure again, but Fairyinthewind will have come on for a good effort on the Flat last month and makes more appeal. Western Approaches has lost her way a little since landing a double last year and Stone Light has yet to replicate her earlier form in France.
