Battaash or Lady Aurelia? Or could it be Blue Point?

I think Battaash has only himself to beat. If he keeps cool, calm and collected and shows the form in France when beating Marsha this race is his for the taking (easily); Lady Aurelia won this very well last year, but a year older and did not perform at Del Mar and also beaten at Keeneland just recently when odds-on; Blue Point has an outside chance if either of the main protagonists under-performed. The rest running for a place, at best, I believe.

Unless i'm mistaken i suspect they're all a year older Wink

Battaash and Lady Aurelia are both 4 year olds.

Battaash is rated 123, Lady Aurelia is rated 122 yet receives 3 lbs filly allowance.

also beaten at Keeneland just recently when odds-on

That race was over 5.5f that she barely gets. She won the same race last year, but her class gets her through. As a front runner, 5f on firm going at Ascot is ideal. It's also a quick drying course, so conditions could be perfect on Tuesday.

Battaash is a very edgy gelding and the occasion could get to him.

If you're backing Battash then you wait until he's down at the post and see how he is.....

Is Battaash the best horse in the race? I think so. If so, the 5/2 available is generous, and is so mainly because of uncertainty about his behaviour prior to the race, and not his ability or potential - he was devastating in the Prix de l'Abbaye.

Lady Aurelia was caught by Marsha at York, and ran disappointingly in America since then; she won this race last year beating Profitable, but Profitable is no world beater, in my opinion. Also, she no longer gets the weight-for-age allowance this time too.

Aurelia was a once a wonder horse and who can forget when Frankie c*cked up?! Laugh

Still fast enough to win, if she doesn't hang and runs like a rocket, as she can

I'm on anyway! Excited

In my opinion Battaash is a good lay tomorrow, and for several reasons
