Taghrooda was unfancied when making a winning start in a maiden here in September but that form already has a solid look about it and she is almost to have strengthened up over the winter. Her trainer must think a lot of NIGHT FEVER, however, letting her make her racecourse debut at this elevated level. She's a sister to Dee Stakes winner Astrology and has plenty of fancy entries so it would be no surprise to see her make a winning start. Surcingle was well beaten in this grade over a mile here in November but Sound Reflection last ran in the Fillies Mile and can't be ignored.
