A penalty demands more but MAQAASID could be something special and can remain unbeaten. John Gosden's filly did well to pick up the speedball Meow in the Queen Mary and although the pair had the best of the ground it looks solid form. She is a January foal so had every right to be precocious but having swerved the Cheveley Park in favour of this she can justify that move. Tim Easterby targets this meeting and course winner Imperialistic Diva's Ascot fourth behind Soraaya can be upgraded slightly, although she has a few lengths to find with Margot Did on that running, with Michael Bell's filly, a wonderfully progressive filly, taken to run well once again. Perfect Tribute split that pair in third and is impossible to discount, along with the sixth home Queen Of Spain, but don't rule out Rimth who hasn't been seen since a Windsor debut win in May but could be anything.
