Diamond Lady's earlier win came in a seller at Bath and she's been well beaten since albeit in better company than this. Honey Meadow and Musical Molly were both narrow-margin maiden winners last time but the form hasn't worked out in either race so PRINCESS ROSE gets the nod. She ran well again for third in a tougher contest at Ascot last week and can open her account at this level. The remainder have some catching up to do if they're to get involved.
