13:50 Ascot

The Group 2 Princess Margaret stakes over six furlongs for two year old fillies.

Quite a few of the these have form lines that tie in with each other, therefore there is not a lot to separate them.

The two that are likely to head the market are Desert Dreamer and System who finished first and second last time out at HQ with the latter getting the better of the duel.

Desert Dreamer may have been a tad unfortunate that day with not the smoothest of passages, but I would still expect System to come out on top again here as she arguably has more improvement to come.

Nazanin is an unknown quantity. She won decisively on debut at Haydock but it was soft ground that day and if the forecast thunderstorms fail to materialise, it may be on the quick side for her.

I like the look of Zain Claudette. She ran a fine race on debut at Goodwood and was only narrowly denied by a filly that was recently placed in a Group 2 in France.

Natural improvement saw her follow that run by winning a decent looking maiden at Newmarket quite comfortably in which a few of the big yards were represented.

At the time of writing Zain Claudette is a double figure price, which looks great value.
