In depth

Verdict

NASHWA has developed into a high-class filly, culminating in her famous win in the Prix de Diane at Chantilly to give Hollie Doyle a first Classic success. She has the outside draw - a negative - and it will be interesting to see if her rider can manoeuvre her into the filly's preferred prominent racing position. She is hard to oppose on the strength of her last two Classic performances with the prospect of more to come after just five outings. Collateral formlines involving the four -year-olds makes sorting them out a complex procedure and Lilac Road is just a narrow preference of the quartet, although decent arguments can be made for each of them. Concert Hall's last three starts have come in England, Ireland and America and the Dubawi filly has applied herself with real credit each time. She should do so again and is a highly respected Ballydoyle challenger.
