Je Ne Sais Quoi was a promising third on soft ground at Ascot last month and looks well drawn here in stall 12. She has the edge in experience over LATAMA but George Boughey’s newcomer looks certain to win races if living up to her pedigree. Her half-sister Umm Kulthum won at Group 2 and Listed level and was third in the Cheveley Park at two. Barg may need further but is worth a second look and Midnight Lir has already shown ability in a couple of outings.
