Adhwaa is one of the more exposed but was placed in Listed company at Newmarket in October. Lustrous failed to cope in a couple of Group 2 events after winning her maiden at Salisbury but Bright Cecily, Kind Invitation and Evita Peron are all unexposed maiden winners and the latter has the advantage of a recent outing. SOLAR MAGIC caught the eye making up lots of ground in the closing stages over 7f at Headquarters on her debut and, with this longer trip sure to suit, John Gosden's filly gets the nod to open her account.
