Lily Rules and Regardez ran in the Oaks at Epsom three weeks ago. The former did best but both were eventually well beaten, though the latter had finished third in the Musidora at York on her previous start. PELERIN was desperately unlucky not to beat Eastern Belle in a Listed race over this trip at Newbury earlier in the month as she was badly hampered when beginning her run and was only beaten a neck. Marco Botti's filly can gain compensation here with Magic Of Reality probably the best of the older horses, though she's come up short in two previous tries in this grade.
