Under a hard Sean Levey drive, Martyn Meade’s filly showed plenty of will to win when keeping up the gallop all the way to the line in the Blue Riband Trial at Epsom last time. While she was collared late by the fast finishing Wirko that day on the Downs, it’s not as though it was the filly stopping that got her beat and there’s a suspicion that this step up in trip will see her to better effect. The winner at Epsom didn’t uphold the form at Chester but he wouldn’t be the first horse to be caught out on the Roodee. John Gosden has to be respected in this race, but the tentative nod goes for Meades filly taking on her own sex once again.


Kyprios
Racecard

Adayar came from a long way back to grab second in the Classic Trial at Sandown last time out and brings the strongest piece of form to the race, but there’s no ignoring Aidan O’Brien’s record here. The Ballydoyle maestro has brought 12 horses across for this race in the past 15 years, showing a very healthy strike rate of 42%, with another two finishing second. Kyprios looks the pick of his pair this year, and he certainly strikes as a horse who’ll go on improving. He didn’t handle the Newmarket track in the Zetland Stakes, but bounced back with a good win at Cork last month. A full brother to Search For A Song and Falcon Eight he looks certain to improve for this step-up in trip.


Isabella Giles
Racecard

Although she carries a Group 2 penalty, Clive Cox’s 3yo still gets weight from all but one of her rivals here. She was particularly impressive in taking the Prestige and the Rockfel Stakes last season, but probably pulled too hard to give herself any chance of staying the Fillies Mile trip. Back at 7f in the Fred Darling Stakes, she travelled with zest and enthusiasm out in front for most of the way, only being caught late to finish a 3l fifth. The first and third that day weren’t beaten far in the Guineas subsequently, while two further down the pack have since won at Listed level. If improving for her seasonal debut, Isabella Giles might just be value to land this.


Asad
Racecard

Just the four runners here, with just a sole pace angle which could play into the hands of those backing Mick Appleby’s representative. Asad has mixed it up over different distances throughout his short career, but has put up his best runs over this 7f trip. An easy winner at Chelmsford in December, he nearly made it all the way back there last time out, only collared late on. He’s only up a pound in the weights, back on turf, but with his three rivals liking to come off the pace he may just get his own way out in front and be able to dictate and kick on to victory when it matters.
