Amy Dorrit posted an improved effort when second at Doncaster last month and another bold bid looks on the cards here. She's preferred to recent Newbury fourth Lily Potts and Sugar Loaf, who finished just ahead of Miss Blakeney with Song Of Joy further behind at Lingfield a fortnight ago. Narla and Al Karlovyyh are newcomers to note, but the vote goes to Godolphin's debutante TAJRIBA, a 200,000gns daughter of Teofilo and half-sister to an Irish 1000 Guineas winner.
