Shagah probably came up against a smart performer when failing to cope with Winters Moon at Newmarket and it will be a surprise if she's not in the hunt. THUNDER IN MYHEART also ran over this trip at Headquarters and produced a very encouraging display to finish runner-up to the well supported Arethusa so, with further progress guaranteed, she looks the one to be on. Hoorayforhollywood only showed modest improvement from her opening run when placed at Doncaster but Runner Runner stayed on strongly at Lingfield and could get into the frame. The five newcomers are all very nicely bred with Ralph Beckett's Oasis Dream filly Sweet Dream perhaps the best of them at this stage, though the market should prove the best guide.
