Last year's winner arrived on the back of victory in a Listed race at Sandown and TIGGY WIGGY won the same contest by nearly four lengths last month. Richard Hughes prefers the Kodiac filly to stablemate and Ascot maiden winner Dangerous Moonlite and she gets the nod. Wesley Ward won this in 2009 and easy Keeneland winner Spanish Pipedream shares a similar profile. The American raider may well figure in the finish and Ireland's challenge is being led by Anthem Alexander, who trounced the opposition at Tipperary earlier in the month. She's preferred to compatriot Newsletter. Blue Aegean won impressively at Nottingham a fortnight ago and Harry's Dancer dotted up at Thirsk in good style. They should also figure and Clouds Rest is progressing well and is another to consider on her latest win at Newbury.
