Betting Tip: @ Actress @ 4/1 with williamhill

A fascinating renewal and not an easy one to figure out. Roger Varian provides the likely favourite in Madeline and she certainly impressed when easily beating the highly regarded Natural at Newbury last time, having run well in a strong edition of the Albany previously. She is preferred to the other British challengers and the forecast cut in the ground gives her the edge of Wesley Ward’s Happy Like A Fool, who has not been seen since finishing second in the Queen Mary. Even if she does act on the ground, she’s got her stamina to prove for this extra furlong and her racing style suggests she’s all about speed.

But in my mind they’re all got Irish raider ACTRESS to beat and Aidan O’Brien’s filly looks a cracking price at Hills’ 4/1. Her trainer is not scared to campaign his juveniles aggressively, even the best ones, and they invariably improve as the season progresses. The selection is no exception as she has won two of her seven starts and posted her best effort to date when third against the colts in a Curragh Group 1 last time. The front two, stablemate Sioux Nation and Beckford, are potentially top-notchers and Actress only succumbed close home having been upsides a furlong out. On that evidence she is a very progressive filly and will take all the beating here under Ryan Moore.
