The Gosdens’ yard won the Oaks trial at York earlier in the week and NASHWA bid to advertise her Classic claims having won impressively at Haydock last month. Frankie gets the leg-up on stablemate Bouquet while Ribblesdale entry Mukaddamah represents last year’s winning yard having finished runner-up in a conditions' race at Ascot. Golden Mayflower, also in the Ribblesdale, and Ducal Crown filled the places at Kempton and Stay Alert won over a longer trip at Wolverhampton but Flash Betty has something to prove now after a couple of moderate efforts.
