PRINCESS HIGHWAY won this last year before landing the Ribblesdale at Royal Ascot. Her final three starts of the campaign were all at Group 1 level and she wasn't disgraced in any of them so is the obvious choice today. La Collina never won last season after her brilliant juvenile exploits but raced at the highest level throughout. She has the benefit of a run having stayed on over a trip too short at the Curragh so has to be a threat. Rehn's Nest did well as a juvenile without winning but looked to have improved over the winter when landing a Curragh Group 3 in March. She's a very progressive type and, though having a bit to find, is by no means out of this whereas Euphrasia is useful but looks outclassed.
