Iceni Girl is making steady if unspectacular progress though the form of her recent second at Sandown isn't working out, while Costa Del Fortune's chances have taken a knock with Ryan Moore deserting her in favour of stablemate Make Up, who was well beaten over 5f on her debut. Jockey bookings also suggest Gypsy Ballad is Godolphin's second choice behind PARLEY. The latter's dam was a high-class Grade 1 winner in America and the daughter of Street Cry could be up to taking this on her debut. Gooseberry Fool could prove best of the remainder.
