Bountybeamadam was progressing nicely until running as though something was amiss at Ascot in July. She'll prove a threat if picking up on her earlier form. REQAABA is also on a recovery mission having returned a losing favourite at Kempton in November. She'd finished a respectable seventh in the Tattersalls Millions at Newmarket on her debut and a similar effort would make her difficult to beat in this. Little Choosey looks to have a bit to find with the principals on her return but her yard is in fine form and she makes most appeal of the remainder.
