14:40 Newbury

Whitebeam has made a likeable start to her career, finishing third on her debut and winning her next start, both over seven furlongs. She steps up to a mile today but given the way she streaked clear of her rivals on her latest Newbury victory. She’s been given a penalty for her victory and although she’s by Caravaggio, she’s related to Logician down the line so she may need further.

Light Of Peace represents the mighty connections of Buick, Appleby and Godolphin. She made an encouraging debut at Newmarket and will have learnt a lot from that day. She’s rather well regarded and you would imagine progress will ensure. She stands a good chance at taking the victory today.

Every Blue Moon is seemingly the second string of Sir Michael Stoute’s charge, given that Ryan Moore is riding Crystal Caprice. Nevertheless, Pat Dobbs is in fine form. She’s rather well bred, being a half sister to smart performer, Highest Ground. She may find the mile a tad too fast but she’s too much of a large price to overlook.

EVERY BLUE MOON (E/W) 15:10 Newbury

Stay Alert might have found a mile too fast on her debut but she duly obliged over a mile and four furlongs. She stepped up to listed company, over course and distance, when she was beaten a length and a half by eventual Oaks third Nashwa. She has the best figures in the race and evidently has good form. She is a real contender.

Golden Lyra has only ran once, winning a seven furlong contest at Newmarket. She stormed home by five lengths. Of even more interest, she beat the aforementioned Nashwa into third that day. She’s well bred and William Haggas and Tom Marquand are in good form. She retains all of that potential but the only possible chink in her armour is that she’s been off for nearly three quarters of a year.

Ching Shih is incredibly well bred, by Lope De Vega and the striking Madame Chiang. She’s only visited Newbury once in her career and won by four lengths. She made her seasonal reappearance in the Musidora Stakes at York, she didn’t have the greatest passage but finished a close third to Emily Upjohn. She just edges the vote, especially given William Buick’s booking.
