Having won the Nell Gwyn earlier in the week with Daban, John Gosden and owner Abdullah Saeed Al Naboodah are now taking aim at the Dubai Duty Free Stakes with Dabyah.
The Newbury Guineas trial, better known as the Fred Darling, has been a bit of a graveyard for favourites recently but Dabyah brings the strongest form, having finished third to Wuheida in the Group One Prix Marcel Boussac at Chantilly.
Richard Fahey's Frankel filly Queen Kindly won the Lowther last year, emulating her dam Lady Of The Desert, but for one who has so much natural speed, she needs to prove her stamina over this seven furlongs.
Promising may still be a maiden after three runs but Richard Hannon has high hopes for her this season given she was narrowly beaten in a Group Three on her final outing at Goodwood.
James Tate's Urban Fox is another with Group One form to her name, having finished third to Guineas favourite Rhododendron in the Fillies' Mile.
Arwa, Glitter Girl, Mystic Dawn, Pichola Dance, Poet's Princess, Rain Goddess and Think Fashion make up the 11-runner field.
