Most of those with experience have produced their best form on Polytrack but Mae Rose Cottage showed potential in two starts over 5f last summer and, as she's by Dylan Thomas, should be much more at home over this trip. Aarti started favourite at Lingfield after a promising debut at Newmarket but found 7f too short and this is more like her trip while Al Baidaa did nothing wrong when fourth to Mississippi at Kempton and can improve. Neither Chigun nor Disposition look like being stable stars though both should do better but this can go to a newcomer. Irish History cost 950,000 euros and is related to some useful performers including Echo Of Light. She's on the short-list but it's EMIRATES QUEEN, a half-sister to the high-class Dubawi and several other winners, who really catches the eye and she's taken to make a successful start.
