LADY NOUF never got competitive in the Nell Gwynn and was eased. She's much better than that as her Leicester maiden win has worked out really well and she gets another chance upped in trip. Cruck Realta makes a swift reappearance after finishing third over a mile at Ascot on Wednesday but lacks the scope of some of her rivals and Magic of Reality is more interesting. The Galileo filly ran a little green when sent off favourite for a Newbury maiden last month but had obviously being showing plenty at home and should be winning soon. Investec Oaks entry Madame Defarge should also go well while Vanity Rules should have more to offer this year and is preferred to Kempton winner Talent of the others.
