Lilbourne Lass looked to be feeling the effects of a busy campaign at Chester last time and Alutiq is similarly exposed while this looks too hot for Lamar, who has been placed at this level but was well beaten in a Group 3 last time. Dorothy B holds a Cheveley Park entry but only beat two rivals at Nottingham and needs a lot more if she's to trouble JOYEUSE and Wedding Ring. Lady Cecil's daughter of Oasis Dream gets the nod as she is a half-sister to no less than Frankel and looks to have a bright future judged on her staying-on third in the Albany Stakes where she had the Godolphin filly behind. The latter's subsequent third in the Sweet Solera suggests the form is solid.
