The lightly-raced STAR PEARL can take care of her more exposed rivals. She opened her account with a victory at Windsor recently and there should be plenty more to come from Roger Varian's filly now handicapping for the first time. Hunting Rights landed a lower grade race at Epsom last time but the remainder were all beaten on their latest starts. Stresa had a legitimate excuse as she found life tough in Listed company at Ascot while Royal Prize failed once again to last home over a longer trip. Yarmouth winner Dark Emerald may also do better back over a mile and looks best of the rest.
