Roxelana was all out to land the odds in a Lingfield maiden in February and will find this much tougher. Recent Wolverhampton second Bint Alzain has her first race on Turf while Amber Silk hasn't been seen since failing to justify favouritism at Kempton in September. Cockney Rhyme looks worth opposing again under top weight but Cantal can improve on her victory at Lingfield in the autumn and Perfect Fantasy is better than she showed at Kempton last time. FORGIVE, a daughter of Pivotal, came good over this trip at Yarmouth in October after a couple of decent efforts in maidens. She has the beating of Hikma on the form book and looks the type to flourish as a three-year-old so gets the nod.
