DRAMATISED won the Queen Mary at Royal Ascot a shade cosily despite Daniel Tudhope dropping his whip inside the final furlong and this extra furlong may well unlock more improvement from this exciting filly. Kinta was staying on well behind Lezoo last time which was her first start on turf and the George Boughey-trained filly enters calculations. The form of LADY HOLLYWOOD's last few wins has worked out well and this extra yardage should cause her no issues.
Prediction : 1st Dramatised 2nd Kinta 3rd Lady Hollywood

A competitive race as always and Shouldvebeenaring may prove popular for the stable which has won this four times in recent years. He can get involved but doesn't appear ideally drawn in the middle, so preference is for METAHORSE, who is improving all the time and may well land his hat-trick after wins at Chester and Thirsk. Matching Sox could get involved if he takes to the turf, though Washington Heights might prove to be the biggest danger if the pace is on the nearside as expected.
Prediction : 1st Metahorse 2nd Washington Heights 3rd Shouldvebeenaring

BOOSALA still looks open to plenty of improvement and, if he's been freshened up by a short break, William Haggas' runner is fancied to add to his tally here. Bass Player is another unexposed rival who can go well after a close second at Newmarket last time, while Rhoscolyn shaped better than the bare result at Goodwood and he looks capable of making the frame at a nice price with the impressive Harry Davies aboard once again.
Prediction : 1st Boosala 2nd Bass Player 3rd Rhoscolyn

It is hard to oppose the ever-progressive ALPINISTA, who seeks to extend her winning streak to seven following a comfortable win in the Grand Prix de Saint-Cloud last month. Her sole outing at this track, coincidentally in this race, saw her finish a good second behind Love despite being the outsider in the field, and she could go one better this time. Oaks heroine Tuesday seems a big threat despite a disappointing showing in the Irish Derby in June, while Raclette seeks a hat-trick and can also be feared.
Prediction : 1st Alpinista 2nd Tuesday 3rd Raclette

GOLDEN LYRA is best treated at these weights with an official rating of 101 and her Listed second over 1m2f at Newbury two starts ago is among the best form on offer. She won easily when upped to this distance at Kempton and looks sure to mount a bold bid on her turf return. Mimikyu is improving at a rate of knots and could confirm Haydock form with Time Lock, despite meeting on 6lb worse terms, having taken a further step forward at Newmarket. Star Fortress and Haskoy are others to note.
Prediction : 1st Golden Lyra 2nd Mimikyu 3rd Time Lock

16:45 York

ONE NATION has continued to go from strength to strength and his two wins hinted at a colt with Group-class potential. The son of Dubawi can therefore land this valuable nursery en route to bigger targets, with stablemate Courageous Knight and the consistent X J Rascal capable of chasing him home. Kyeema got off the mark cosily at Catterick, but he may need some juice in the ground to be seen at his best, while Mystical Applause and Scholarship are others to note.
Prediction : 1st One Nation 2nd X J Rascal 3rd Courageous Knight

17:20 York

QUEEN AMINATU was an eye-catching second when flying home over the mile at Haydock, where she was only beaten by half a length. A repeat of that effort would see William Haggas' three-year-old go very close, with Hayley Turner's mount sure to be finishing strongly again. Mobadra won easier than the winning distance of three-quarters of a length suggests when scoring over 7f at Chelmsford last time and she could be in the mix, while Adaay In Asia should also be feared seeking a four-timer.
Prediction : 1st Queen Aminatu 2nd Mobadra 3rd Adaay In Asia
