If HAWAAFEZ is to justify her Oaks entry she must win this convincingly though she faces stiff competition. Marcus Tregoning's daughter of Nayef didn't have much to do to land her maiden at Lingfield but did it in good style and there should be much more to come. Mark Johnston has a strong hand with Art History and School For Scandal with preference for the former, who landed a Wolverhampton maiden in January despite looking very inexperienced. Corsicanrun is well regarded despite being surprisingly beaten on her debut at Thirsk. She went one better over 7f here on her final start and will be much better suited by today's trip. Oasis Storm faces a stiff task conceding weight and both Celani and Fimias will need to step-up on what they have shown to date.
