Coquet won a Listed race over 1m2f here on last year's reappearance but doubts remain regarding her stamina over today's distance. Lily The Pink, Jehannedarc and Khione finished in that order behind Gallipot at Newmarket in September but the former was tailed off on her recent comeback. Souviens Toi is hard to assess on her winning form in Italy as she makes her debut for Marco Botti but Newmarket winner Bite Of The Cherry gets every yard of the trip and should be thereabouts. RECKONING's third at Doncaster in November looks more impressive in hindsight as subsequent dual Group 1 winner Sajjhaa finished runner-up in that race. Jeremy Noseda's filly is entered in a Group 2 contest at York later this month and gets the vote on her return.
