It will be interesting to see how the market shapes up for Sir Michael Stoute's newcomer Modun, who is an already gelded son of King's Best out of a Sadler's Wells mare, but the best form in the race is arguably held by SENTOSA and she gets the vote. Henry Cecil's filly stepped up from her debut effort at Salisbury when finding just Longliner too good at Goodwood recently and she looks the one to beat. James Fanshawe's Mashatu ran better at Sandown last time but looks booked for a place at best and of more interest may be Paul Cole's Nerves Of Steel, who has run well in both outings so far. Brendan Powell's Silent Oasis is more exposed than most of his rivals but should run his usual good race.
