LESSON IN HUMILITY gets the nod here. Look Busy is an obvious threat, while Quaroma and Favourite Girl appeal as the best of the rest. The last named was found out in a Group 3 last time out but will appreciate the ease in grade. She does, however, need to show more sparkle before she can be supported with any confidence, so may be best watched again. Quaroma is a lightly raced four-year-old and seems to like her racing at Nottingham. She can be expected to be sharper for her latest start and represents good value at the likely odds. Look Busy has already exceeded many expectations and is a credit to everyone concerned with her preparations. The Danetime filly doesn't know how to run a bad race and she will surely be waiting in the wings if the selection is not at the top of her game. However, Lesson In Humility is a versatile filly and, as her close up sixth in a Group 2 at Ascot last September testifies, she is a force to be reckoned with when she hits the gates running.
