The two southern hemisphere-bred fillies have plenty to do conceding weight to some very promising types, though Magrooma ran in a Greyville Group 1 last time. Charlie Appleby's Autumn Lily makes her debut on an artificial surface and her three victories came on fast ground including when conceding lumps of weight all round in a Newbury nursery. Her stablemate WEDDING RING had a brilliant first campaign culminating in victories in major fillies' auction races at Newmarket, on both occasions having Oxsana just behind. She can continue her upward curve by taking this, though the latter just failed to land a Listed contest in heavy ground at Newbury and should adapt to this surface.
