Sky Garden was well backed at Haydock earlier this month following her third at Windsor but was beaten a short-head by debutante Red Turban. She has every chance here, however, as does Supernova Heights who went very close at Newbury before finding Listed company too hot at Salisbury. Roger Varian introduces the US-bred Hekaayaat while Sir Michael Stoute has entered Primadonna Girl, a daughter of King's Best, though she'll undoubtedly do better over further in time. Ilsa Lund and Lexi's Beauty are other newcomers who catch the eye but it's interesting to note that David Lanigan has BRIGHT GLOW in all of the autumn's big sales races. By Exceed And Excel, she must have been showing plenty of speed at home so get a tentative vote.
