Wedding Ring returns from Meydan where she won the UAE 1000 Guineas trial over 7f. She has plenty of early pace and this shorter trip shouldn't be a problem. Toofi won a similar contest over track and trip in September before finding Oklahoma City too good. A line through the latter gives him something to find with Bon Voyage and the latter competes on favourable terms with Crowdmania, who completed a hat-trick on the Polytrack with a victory at Kempton last month. The maiden winners Magnus Maximus, Scrutiny and Naadirr have plenty of scope as they step up in class, but a speculative vote goes to ONE CHANCE. She's changed handlers since a below par effort here in July but had made the frame when third in the Queen Mary at Ascot before that and a similar effort should see her go close.
