Musically arrives off the back of a comfortable win over 1m6f at Catterick and her earlier second to Hi Note at Warwick has worked out well. Captain Cardington got up close home to beat Hidden Justice over 1m4f at Windsor nine days ago but his penalty could be a problem here while Eastern Magic has gone backwards since winning at Bath in August. QUEEN'S STAR can race off the same mark as when a length-and-a-quarter second to Petaluma at Bath last time. This is a lesser contest and, very much at home on soft ground, Andrew Balding's consistent filly is the one to beat.
