Floralys is clear on official ratings though that's based on her efforts for Dermot Weld in Ireland back in 2011 and she's having her first start since. LILY EDGE has the more recent form with a debut second at Lingfield last month. Normal improvement could see her come out best in this with a couple of newcomers carrying a threat. Early One Morning cost 28,000gns and hails from the family of Oaks winner Pure Grain while the dam of Oratorio's Joy was a winner in France. Hawaiian Dream and Bullseye Babe have some catching up to do to match the selection.
