It's a rarity to see Godolphin's colours in one of these events but ARABIAN BEAUTY takes her chance. The three-year-old has plenty of scope and her jockey has already ridden a winner at the track this year. A Mick Easterby-trained runner is a more usual sight and Unex Michelangelo won an amateurs' race at Beverley last time while Northside Prince and Megan Nicholls scored at Musselburgh in June. Aldwick Bay has won under today's rider this season while Tinseltown, last year, and Pertuis, in 2012, have won the most recent renewals and could also figure along with Serena Brotherton's mount Tropical Bachelor.
