Magic Tips Comments

CHERRY ON THE TOP is top class and she proved that when she thrashed her Guineas field last time out. She is well on her way to Triple Tiara glory and she will love every bit of today's extra furlong. The daughter of Tiger Ridge is extremely well drawn at 3 today and should have no equals in this contest. The frightening thought is that she is still improving as she hung badly last time and should have won by a much wider margin. 

The battle for second is an interesting one and NEGEV will be a definite force if she produces her best form. The daughter of Stronghold hated being equipped with blinkers last time and that run must be ignored. She needed her comeback run prior to that when outrun late by the unbeaten ORATOR'S DAUGHTER but will be cherry-ripe today and will relish the step-up in distance. 

The latter has been impressive in all three of her starts to date but takes a huge rise in class and tries an extra 400m. Whilst the trip may not pose a concern, she may be taking on too much too soon and tries the turn for the first time.

This is a fascinating contest and the extra furlong could throw the form of the Guineas into disarray.

ALEXANDRA PALACE was comfortably beaten by many of today's rivals in the Guineas when below-par after perhaps still just needing the outing. He raced wide on that occasion and never really threatened. There isn't much doubt that the son of Jet Master found that trip too sharp for him but he will love every bit today's extra furlong and will be cherry-ripe on his third run after the layoff. He proved his class when he got up late to beat a feature field over this trip first time out of the maidens in his penultimate effort, despite coming off a three month layoff. His class pulled him through his two inside track victories but this outside course will suit him even better.

TELLINA is another classy sort and he came from stone last to beat most of today's rivals in the Guineas last time. The manner with which he finishes suggests that this extra furlong will suit him well and he has strong claims of following up.
