It's practically impossible to hold a strong opinion in such an open contest and the betting may provide the best clues. Stresa will appreciate the longer trip on her return and Mango Diva makes more appeal than stablemate Jareeda and Hidden Belief. Better is expected from Atlantic Isle this season and Last Hooray also has a shout. SAUCY MINX has the more recent form with a promising second at Newmarket on her reappearance and she gets the speculative vote. Salford Excel, Rail Star, Cape Appeal and International Love are all newcomers to note.
