Arabian Music got within a head of the winner at Kempton last time and has leading claims. River Goddess finished four lengths behind the latter but was having her first start since August and is expected to provide more of a challenge today. La Napoule had shown plenty of promise over 6f before disappointing over today's trip at Kempton and she may bounce back with a better effort, though it's TRUST THE WIND that gets a speculative vote. She was unfancied for her debut in a much more competitive maiden at Lingfield in October but John Gosden's filly is likely to have improved during the interim.
