AMHOOJ is seemingly better on the Polytrack than on turf, having been placed in all four starts on the surface, and Marcus Tregoning's filly looks to have been found a suitable opportunity to open her account, getting the vote ahead of Sibi Saba and El Diego. The last mentioned showed improvement with each start for Aidan O'Brien and he has to be respected on his debut for Jonathan Gask. Willie Musson's Arts Guild put a disappointing effort at Windsor behind him when finding just Covert Ambition too good at Nottingham last time and he has to be of interest on his first start on the Polytrack since making his debut. Mark Johnston introduces a son of Singspiel in the shape of Advocacy and he has to be considered but the yard's two-year-olds normally improve with racing. Godolphin's Sibi Saba has not progressed from a promising debut effort and may be best watched despite the good form of the yard in a race that is taken to go to the in-form Amhooj.
