A close up fourth in the Oaks, VOW ran below par in the Ribblesdale at Ascot when last seen at the track in June. She gets another chance to confirm the potential of her earlier form in this. Emirates Queen is another looking to restore a tarnished reputation as she's been below par the last twice and stablemate Hippy Hippy Shake has plenty to find on today's terms. John Gosden runs three with Listed winner Polygon looking to have the strongest claims while Set To Music would prefer a longer trip. Saeed Bin Suroor has a decent record in this race but Khawlah has struggled for form all season and so has Kailani, also representing Godolphin. Crystal Gal is better over shorter trips but Dorcas Lane ran well when runner-up on the July course here last time.
