Queenie's Home and Inyordreams are the most exposed and the remaining quartet are all maiden winners with plenty of scope. Invoke scored over 5f at Catterick and Dutch S won at Haydock before floundering in soft ground at Newbury in October. Perfect Alchemy is not easily overlooked having won over track and trip in September, but TERHAAB also opened her account over course and distance with a subsequent winner behind and John Gosden's filly may prove good enough in a tight contest.
