Forecast

Desert Diamond (5/2), Mary Tudor (7/2), I'm So Fancy (4/1), Dynabee (7/1), Hence (10/1), Turret Rocks (10/1), Espere (12/1), Adorable (16/1), Snowy Winter (20/1), Erin (40/1), Beach Wedding (50/1)

Verdict

MARY TUDOR ran an excellent race in the Irish Oaks finishing third behind Sea Of Class and Oaks winner Forever Together and while this is a much sharper test such form leaves her a long way clear of the rest and therefore she is a confident selection here. Desert Diamond is herself an improving three-year-old and Sir Michael Stoute's filly bolted up in a Listed race latest so is more than worthy of a crack at Group level now. I'm So Fancy is having a fine season and clearly loves it here so she will find any chinks in the armour of her younger rivals.
  1. Mary Tudor
  2. Desert Diamond
  3. I'm So Fancy
