Our Selections are:
She Will Reign is a fast filly, she has made the competition look weak at every start. Veranillo from the Godolphin stable is also unbeaten and this Colt will give She Will Reign a run for her money, he loves this distance and I see him catching She Will Reign in the last 100m. Khan has raced well and should be there abouts at the finish.
