3 pts win DANCE DIVA 11/1 ( at least a dozen firms)
Princess Elizabeth Stakes

This filly is ideally suited by some ease in the ground which she gets today. Readily outpointed by the Lowther winner on fast ground last time, she has shown that she has trained on well and hails from a yard in full flow at the moment. There is no single opponent to be over scared of here, and she should give a good account of herself.

Lost - 3 pts

2 pts win RESHOUN  13/2 ( at least 4 firms including Hills)
1 pt win ACROSS THE STARS 9/1 ( at least 5 firms inc Victor and Bet365)
Investec Out of the Ordinary Handicap

Reshoun shaped well on his seasonal debut and has similar ground today on which he created a most favourable impression when winning a Doncaster handicap last backend off an 8 lb lower rating. Impossible to leave out of any portfolio for this race.

Across The Stars races off a 3 lb higher mark on the back of an excellent run at York last time. Has taken on a new profile compared with the days when he was with the Stoute yard but has a couple of these quite valuable handicaps in him judged by that run last time.

Lost - 3 pts

3 pts win ACES  15/2 ( this price or bigger with at least five firms)
Investec Asset Management Handicap

Has his second run for Ian Williams since being acquired from John Hammond's yard and is a very interesting contender here. He ran well enough on his debut run for his new yard at Ascot when not fancied and while his French form his hard to weigh up in the context of this event, William's placing of his animals gives encouragement that he will be a big player in this.
