Saeed Bin Suroor sent out last year's winner but Teeline, a half-sister to three winners, will need to be above average to score on her debut as NUR JAHAN looks the one to beat. She just failed to see out the 7f at Doncaster on her reappearance and can go one better over today's shorter trip. Dodina also drops in distance but her second at Brighton in May looks inferior form to that of the selection and the remainder have shown little to recommend them so far with Joyous perhaps the most likely to improve.
