Qeethaara can usually be relied on to run her race and it was a fillies' only handicap that she won over C&D last month when beating the re-opposing pair Perfect Ch'I and Cut The Cackle. Avonrose is less consistent but capable of going close on her day while Warwick winner Ma Quillet is worth a second glance on her seasonal debut. However, Ryan Moore's presence on CHORAL will not go unnoticed and, given she finished second at Lingfield off today's mark last time, Richard Hannon's filly doesn't need to find much improvement to land this.
