Betting

Forecast

Caravan Of Hope (5/6), King Power (3/1), Pianissimo (11/2), Two Bids (7/1), Its Nice Tobe Nice (50/1)

Verdict
The majority have questions to answer. Two Bids generally refuses to settle, and that is hindering his progress while the frustrating Pianissimo possesses a questionable temperament. Therefore, with Its Nice Tobe Nice unlikely to be overly competitive, this race could prove to be a match between Caravan Of Hope and the top-rated Frankel filly KING POWER who cost an eye-watering 2.5 million guineas as a yearling (and notably carries the name of the King Power Racing Co). A race of this nature ought to be there for the taking for her, and it's probable that a lack of stamina was simply her achilles heel at Chelmsford (1m5½f) five weeks ago.
