Spiritual Flame has the form in the book with a third at Warwick. She's preferred to Serena Grae and Terhaab on that running but the form is nothing special and one of a handful of newcomers may prove too good including stablemate and 180,000gns purchase Heho. John Gosden also runs two and OH STAR, a half-sister to Winter Derby winner Gentleman's Deal, gets the speculative vote ahead of Amaseena and Maria Bella.
