Makruma is one of the more experienced fillies and went close at Newmarket in November. Be My Gal also made the frame at Kempton on her debut at the end of last year while better is expected from Charmy Dukesse and Interject having their first start on Turf. Cradle Of Life should improve for this longer trip and Marsh Daisy represents last year's winning stable. Fellow newcomer Fiery Sunset is another to keep an eye on in the betting but the vote goes the way of BRIGHT APPROACH. A half-sister to Listed winner and stablemate Nichols Canyon, John Gosden's filly may well be good enough to make a winning start.
