Forecast

Evening Hill (9/4), Peace And Plenty (9/4), Easy Code (11/4), Fantasy Queen (10/1), Halinka (12/1), Sandy Shores (14/1), Cadeaux Boxer (20/1), Nuncio (25/1), German Whip (33/1), Exspectation (66/1)

Verdict

A strongly run race on an undulating track suits FANTASY QUEEN and she looks ready to take this. Her two main rivals, Easy Code and Evening Hill, both carry 6lb penalties and that makes the selection look more favourably treated off a mark just 3lb higher than her latest success. Eve Johnson-Houghton's filly has been ridden more conservatively in two races since but a more positive ride, in a race where there should be a strong gallop, can see her back in the winner's enclosure. Easy Code won with a bit in hand here and will be another to appreciate the pace whilst Evening Hill looks a different proposition on AW surfaces. Both will attract support but need to prove themselves off their revised marks.
  1. Fantasy Queen
  2. Easy Code
  3. Evening Hill
