15:35 York – Lady Aurelia (BEST ODDS 13/8 with Paddy Power)
This race is definitely between the two market leaders, but I think that Lady Aurelia has what it takes to win another Group 1 here. She was very impressive when winning at Ascot last time out. She went off at 7/2 and blew the field away, quickening well in the final furlong. It’s a massive plus having the top class Frankie Dettori on board as jockey. Both Lady Aurelia and Battaash are rated at 121, and it is no surprise to me that the American filly is likely to go off favourite. She would be unbeaten if it wasn’t for an off day at Newmarket last year. This looks one of the best races of the week and it should be a cracking contest between two great fillies. Lady Aurelia is one of the best fillies of her generation and it wouldn’t surprise me at all to see her winning once again here. I think that she should be a little shorter in the betting, and that the price on offer here represents some value, given her recent form.
