BOURBON BAY missed out by a neck on debut despite a slightly slow start and if he's sharper from the gate here, he will be tough to beat. Dangerous Edge went close last time and is progressing nicely, while First Deputy's form was solid before a disappointing effort when stepped up to a mile.

Kingdom's Queen historical data/form

SUMMER FANTASY graduated from a maiden win to fill the runner-up spot in a similar race to this and the slight drop in trip serves only to enhance her claims. Kingdom's Queen missed out by a neck at Saratoga and looks the main danger, while The Great Johanna is of interest after bolting up in a maiden.

Albie is rarely too far away so has to be respected, but he was behind JO'S BOLD CAT last time and Kelly Rubley's gelding can build on that third-placed effort to land the spoils here. Graded On A Curve also merits respect after a fair third at Belmont.

Experience could be key and TERCERO is taken to build on a pair of excellent efforts to date to make it third-time lucky. Two newcomers stand out as the main dangers as Convict and More Graytful have posted some excellent workout times.
