Verdict

A big field but a high-class renewal nonetheless. Strawberrydaiquiri and Raihana share top rating on official figures but both are having their first outings since Meydan in March. The former won this for Sir Michael Stoute in 2009 and makes most appeal of Brian Meehan's three runners, while the latter's stablemate Reem could also figure despite her penalty. However, MUSIC SHOW makes most appeal has she's been taking on the likes of Goldikova, Dick Turpin and Midday since winning the Group 1 Falmouth Stakes last year and had excuses at Ascot last time when hampered. Dark Promise beat Heavenly Dawn earlier, but Off Chance has finished ahead of both this season without winning. German import Magic Eye is a Listed winner, while Modeyra's defeat of Timepiece last year is outstanding form but she hasn't raced since November.
