Forecast

Queen Me (6/4), Bonny Angel (9/2), All The Time (11/2), Maria Branwell (9/1), Believing (12/1), Minnetonka (12/1), Barefoot Angel (20/1), Secret Angel (22/1), Marine Wave (25/1), Poetic Union (25/1), Carmela (66/1), Lunarscape (66/1)

In depth

Verdict

Maria Branwell has been unplaced twice over this trip since a beaten favourite in the Super Sprint at Newbury. She is starting to look a little exposed and the Sirenia Stakes runner-up Believing makes more appeal. All The Time ran her best race so far when second in a Group 3 at Salisbury and holds Minnetonka on that run while Bonny Angel has impressed in a couple of nurseries recently. QUEEN ME was probably a bit unlucky in the Lowther at York. That was a big step forward from her opening victory in a Haydock maiden and there should be plenty more to come from Kevin Ryan’s filly.
