Verdict

ELSAABIQAAT produced a career best when dropped to 6f at Salisbury last time and having travelled strongly throughout the race, the step back to five furlongs here could help the Invincible Spirit filly go one better than that narrow second. Nottingham second Tizwotitiz was slightly disappointing at Chepstow last time but could easily bounce back on a sounder surface, while Across The Sea was only beaten around three lengths by a subsequent Group 2 winner on debut and, despite struggling since, could be dangerous from a mark of 69 here.

Verdict

Dropping to the minimum trip should be very much in ELSAABIQAAT's favour and she is taken to make a winning nursery debut, providing conditions do not inconvenience her. Across The Sea possesses potential and needs considering but she left the impression that this trip is plenty sharp enough at Windsor last time. Glorious Charmer is most interesting of the remainder.
