Rizeena deserves the utmost respect having stayed on strongly from off the pace to land the Moyglare Stud Stakes at the Curragh. Wonderfully only managed sixth in that race and was beaten when hampered and eased but Clive Brittain's filly enters unknown territory over this extra furlong whereas probable market rival IHTIMAL is already a Group 2 winner over the trip. She quickened clear of Listed winner Majeyda in the May Hill at Doncaster two weeks ago and third Lady Lara has won since - Saeed bin Suroor's filly can complete her hat-trick. Godolphin's second colours will be carried by the unbeaten Sound Reflection but she'll need to improve again to get involved while only a neck separated Avenue Gabriel and Ballybacka Queen at the Curragh. They both look held by Rizeena on collateral form however.
