Maillot Jaune would be a topical winner but showed very little on debut unlike Ethel, who was a fair second at Kempton. John Gosden's filly may do better when given a more searching test of stamina, however, so LOVED ONE is preferred. The form of the latter's latest fourth at Nottingham is working out really well and she looks ready to open her account now having been too green to do herself justice earlier. Deserted showed promise last year but might need this and Nur Jahan is also making her reappearance. The 120,000gns foal Sleek looks the pick of the newcomers.
