THE 2020 RACE

-----------------------------------

Bharani Star 4th in Ribblesdale does not look good enough to win this race.

Ennistymon Last run better than result might show. She had trouble in running but still finished a good 2nd. Will improve from that and has a live chance.

Frankly Darling Unbeaten this season. On top form with a good win in Ribblesdale. Worthy Fav.

Gold Wand has done nothing wrong in two runs. Steps up in class and improvement expected.

Love 1000 Guineas winner looks very impressive. Well bred and looks the one to beat.

Passion 3rd in Ribblesdale and should come on but may not be enough to overturn places.

Queen Daenerys 2nd in a listed race at Newmarket (7th June). Plenty to find on form.

Tiempo Vuela Poor run at Newmarket and would need to bounce back and improve significantly to get placed here.



Selection Love NB Ennistymon
