Betting Tip: Nathra @ 5/2 with betfair

A tricky contest with just 5lb separating the six runners according to official ratings and fitness concerns over Betfair’s 5/2 favourite, the John Gosden-trained NATHRA, who has been off the track since finishing down the field in Royal Ascot’s Coronation Stakes. However, her spring form is the best on offer as she won the Nell Gwyn here in April before finishing fifth in the 1000 Guineas won by Minding and, better still, went on to finish just a length second behind the top class La Cressonniere in the French equivalent. If running anywhere near that sort of level here in receipt of the fillies’ allowance, she’ll be tough to beat.

Custom Cut, her nearest rival in the betting, is a past winner of this race and only found Time Test a length too good in last year’s renewal. Coming off arguably his best run this season, when only finding Classic winner Awtaad too good at the Curragh, he looks nailed on to be involved again and is feared most ahead of the quirky Forge, who might be better over 7f.
