Verdict

SCINTILLULA was no match for Sky Lantern in the Group 1 Moyglare Stud Stakes at the Curragh last month but she had a subsequent Group 3 winner back in fourth and Jim Bolger's filly gets the nod on that form. Melody Of Love picked up a Group 3 at Ayr in heavy ground with Momalorka behind and gets the assistance of Frankie today with Mickael Barzalona riding Godolphin's Ascot third Desert Blossom. Annie's Fortune, Masarah and Go Angelica have a bit more to find in this company and the unbeaten trio of Just The Judge, Zurigha and Gift From Heaven could improve past them all. Luca Cumani is not known for tilting at windmills so Nargys may well step up on what she's shown to date.
