Verdict

Every one of these ran in the UAE 1000 Guineas three weeks ago with Lovely Pass coming out on top but a look through the race suggests the form will have little bearing on today's longer event as it was run at a virtual crawl. MUSIC CHART, who finished third, had no opportunity to play to her strengths and wasn't given the best of rides so she's taken to reverse the form with the winner and runner-up Shuruq and take this. Emotif, the only southern hemisphere entry, started a short-priced favourite and was another hopelessly placed when the sprint for the line began so she's expected to do much better with a stiffer test of stamina.
