Macnamara and Astral Rose were both beaten out of sight when TULLIA went within a short-head of catching the winner on the Turf at Lingfield last time. That looks stronger form than Nice Arty's narrow-margin defeat at Brighton and Bill Knight's filly gets the nod to open her account. Newcomers to note include Champagne Sydney and Euro Charline but SWORDBEARER is a half-brother to a couple of winners and could prove best of them.
