Godolphin have a couple of likely sorts here with Vezzali preferred to newcomer Tumooh on the evidence of her debut third at Doncaster back in July. DERIVATIVES has a fitness advantage, however, as she ran twice last month and is expected to improve on her latest fifth in a higher grade maiden at Newbury. Sweet Ophelia showed some ability when third on her debut at the same track, but Miss Astragal looks pretty exposed now after six starts without success. Sigurwana, Mishhar and Isatis are worth noting on their first starts, though Discern has returned unsold from the sales twice this year which doesn't bode well for her chances here.
