Listed race winner CITY IMAGE posted an even better effort despite finishing only fourth in a Group 3 at Deauville last time. She handles testing going and is preferred to stablemate Tassel, a winner at Leicester in September. Jillnextdoor has every chance at the weights but wasn't at her best in a couple of starts in soft ground last month while Pearl Sea is another who may prefer a faster surface. Faithfilly's form has taken a dip of late and the less-exposed Hoodna makes more appeal while Ascot winner Melbourne Memories continues to progress but has a stack to find at the weights. Irish raider Scatty Cat has so far proved best over the minimum trip.
