At her best this would look an easy opportunity for Secret Queen. However, things have not gone Meehan's way with this filly and the 1m last time was too stiff a task. This 6f may be the answer but you have to wonder if she is regressing and this shorter distance is another sign that all is not well. Today will clearly answer many questions and I can imagine either an effortless win or another poor showing. Melundy ran well here on debut, especially as this filly was slow away and made good progress throughout to gain a place. Stubbs is a very good trainer and I can see this two-year-old running well today. Chushka is an interesting runner for Smart. She cost £75,000 and wasn't overly fancied in the betting on debut and could well improve for that run. In fairness, she most certainly needs to find something to trouble these but it wouldn't be a surprise to see a decent run today.

BET: Chushka 1PT EW (available at 9/2) (4th)

It is worth keeping an eye on Architrave as Sir Mark Prescott has a fantastic place rate with his fancied juvenile on their second start. It would need to be 13/2 sp to be considered as a bet.
