Timeform Verdict Timeform Verdict

INSPIRAL created an excellent impression when a ready debut scorer in a Newmarket maiden last month and is fancied to take this step up in class in her stride. Charlie Appleby's hat-trick seeking Wild Beauty rates much the biggest threat to the Gosden's choicely-bred Frankel filly, with Doncaster debut winner Allayaali appealing as the pick of the remainder.

Betting Forecast

5/2 Inspiral, 5/2 Wild Beauty, 13/2 Sunstrike (Ire), 16/1 Allayaali (Ire), 14/1 Qipao, 12/1 Safra (Usa), 25/1 Fabiosa, 25/1 Almohandesah, 40/1 Profound Alexander (Ire)
