Willie Muir's Island Sunset has won every one of her four starts and cannot be discounted in a bid to complete a five-timer but she needs to improve on the form shown when successful at Lingfield last month to get the better of SHAMWARI LODGE, who looks the one to beat with Please Sing rated the main danger. The selection is the highest rated of the 12 runners having earned a rating of 105, she has run well in this grade before having found just Fantasia too good in the Sceptre Stakes at Doncaster in the autumn and a reproduction of that form on her reappearance may well suffice for Richard Hannon's filly. Jeremy Glover's Black Dahlia disappointed on her most recent start at Wolverhampton last month but had run well here previously and she has to be considered, while Paul Cole's Seradim is held by the selection on running at York last month. John Gosden's Chantilly Tiffany has only 5lbs on official BHA ratings to find with Shamwari Lodge and she has solid claims on her first outing this term, especially with the yard in good form. Mick Channon's Please Sing showed a decent level of form as a juvenile and has solid claims on her return to action but preference is for Shamwari Lodge.
