Veiled Intrigue wasn't beaten far despite finishing only sixth in a Group 3 at Ayr last month and is just preferred to Oxsana. The latter ran well in a valuable sales race at Newmarket three weeks ago but has yet to encounter soft going. PRETTY FLAMINGO has no problem on that score given she won a handicap at Goodwood doing handstands on her latest start and Richard Hannon's filly can take this step up in class in her stride. Dutch Romance won her maiden in good style in heavy ground at Salisbury and is another to consider ahead of the more-exposed Azagal and Aqlaam Vision.
