Verdict

Lady Of The Court wasn’t entirely disgraced on her first run for Heather Main at Newbury. Starlight Mystery won twice early last year but she’s struggled since and is a lot more exposed than her rivals. Golden Iris was beaten a long way off this mark at Sandown so this should chiefly concern WORTH WAITING (NAP) and Contrive. The former made it third-time lucky in a maiden at Redcar last month and is capable of further progress. She is giving 4lb to the Goodwood second but, on a line through Ganayem, should still come out on top.
