Betting Tip: @ 13/8 with betvictor

This race sees the the Queen Mary second and third, Easton Angel and Besharah, lock horns again, with the latter having two and a half lengths to find. Today’s extra furlong promises to suit William Haggas’ filly and she could finish a lot closer, though Easton Angel is a very likeable sort and should get this far too. Neither may be able to cope with ILLUMINATE, though.

The Richard Hannon-trained filly arrives here unbeaten after two starts, with her latest success coming over this trip in the Albany Stakes at Royal Ascot. Richard Hughes gave her a copybook ride that day and the way she quickened up when switched for a run over a furlong out marked her out as a top-class performer in the making. The stable is chock-full of those and they have strength in depth amongst their juveniles, so the fact that Illuminate is considered their best filly speaks volumes. Proven over this strip and likely to be stronger at the finish than her market rivals, I rate her my day two ‘banker’ at the available 13/8.
