Audemar is proving hard to win with and Destiny Of A Diva is 10lb higher than her latest win in June. There should be more to come from Hamilton conditions race winner Ampleforth, but June's Epsom winner Street Secret has disappointed since and doesn't look the most straighforward. She finished well behind runner-up ESTOURAH at Kempton last time with Granny McPhee further back and the Godolphin colt looks to have every chance of opening his account here on that form. Oratory has slipped down the weights and makes most appeal of the remainder.
