Nabah hasn't shown a great deal this year and Mortitia, fifth in the Fred Darling at Newbury on her reappearance, makes more appeal of the two three-year-olds. But the older fillies should hold sway here with JACQUELINE QUEST an obvious selection. Henry Cecil's daughter of Rock Of Gibraltar may not have run since disappointing in a Group 3 at Goodwood last July but it's impossible to ignore the fact that she finished first past the post in last year's 1000 Guineas earlier and is head and shoulders above these on that form. Bahati has a bit to prove at present but is still preferred to the in-form Saddlers Bend, who has a mountain to climb on these terms.
