Aidan O'Brien tries AHIMSA in cheekpieces for the first time and providing they have the desired effect the filly can gain her second victory on the track after just being denied by Cash Or Casualty over a mile last week. He's Got Rhythm doesn't have the best of strike-rates here but is rarely far away while Jouster has now had a couple of recent runs to put him straight and should be thereabouts. Neither Sean Og Coulston nor Khyber Pass are out of this though both are maidens on the surface.
