Jockey bookings suggest Nice Life is preferred to the other Godolphin runner Alpine Storm, though both produced only moderate efforts on their respective debuts. Pearlofthequarter didn't handle soft ground at Yarmouth last time but is preferred to stablemate and debutant Euro Charline while the newcomers Belle Peinture and Real Jazz are worth noting for any support. But this can go to DUTCH RIFLE, a 50,000gns purchase making her racecourse debut for a yard with a good strike rate at this track.
