HEADING NORTH is easily the pick of those with previous experience in this and sets a decent standard on her second to Liber Nauticus over a mile at Goodwood. A repeat of that effort would probably suffice here though Prospera is entitled to improve on her debut eighth at Sandown. Newcomers to note include Danat Al Atheer, a daughter of Shamardal, and the selection's stablemates Foxy Dancer and Lilbourne Eliza but July Waits and Lady Pimpernel may need more time.
