None are confidently excluded but SSAFA revealed a fine attitude when going down in the last stride in a competitive all-aged handicap at Newbury last time and can make the most of her experience. Regal Heiress hasn't been seen since displaying promise at Windsor back in May and has been given plenty of time since that run by her top yard. She has to be high on the shortlist, whilst Indian Mist, Raasekha and Little Cottonsocks should all improve. The highly-tried Nabah should find this easier than many of her assignments but make a special market note of the Gosden newcomer, Interaction. Khalid Abdullah's filly has obviously had her problems making a belated debut this far into her three-year-old career but is impeccably bred and well worth watching.
