Diamond Finesse and Sunrise Dance are probably best of those with experience but there are some very interesting newcomers here. Ed Dunlop's filly ran well enough on her debut at Windsor and will have improved as will My Queenie for her run at Newmarket though she appeared to need every yard of that 7f trip. Sunrise Dance has run well in decent class maidens though she's beginning to look a little exposed. Barry Hills is gradually striking form so Deduction is one to note being a close relative of several winners and Whimsical will no doubt win races though she's probably not the stable pick. The well-connected Rakasa is one to note from Godolphin but holds no fancy entries unlike SUNDAY TIMES, who has been touted as a likely sort for some time and entries in the Lowther and Cheveley Park suggest she will be expected to do the business on her debut.
