As in the first two races punters are being asked to consider another short-priced favourite in the shape of Jim Bolger’s Pleasach, who is odds-on with bookmakers having won last month’s Irish 1000 Guineas, which made it three wins in just five career starts. However, she has an extra half-mile to travel this afternoon and, while she won over 1m2f two starts back, I wouldn’t suggest anyone lump on at just 5/6.

I will still be betting on the race and it’ll be an each-way investment on Charlie Hills’ PANDORA at double-figure odds. Her form doesn’t even come close to that of the favourite, admittedly, but she’s lightly-raced after just two starts and her third to Star Of Seville in last month’s Musidora at York looks an even better effort after that horse won Sunday’s French Oaks. Hills, who is in far better form now, thinks she will run a big race and has booked Richard Hughes to ride, so she’ll do for me.

Luca Cumani’s Panoma is another one to consider with the step in trip likely to bring out further improvement from this thrice-raced filly and daughter of Duke Of Marmalade. At 11/2 she’s half the price of the selection, though.
