MASARAH finished ahead of Butterfly Queen and Audacia in a Group 3 at Epsom last month and will appreciate this drop in class with her latest run being in a Group 2 at Ascot. She gets the vote though Vanity Rules wasn't disgraced on her first start for a new yard at Goodwood and should strip fitter here. Pavlosk was a bit more like her old self over 7f at Lingfield in May but would need more here and this is a steep rise in class for hat-trick seeker Mu'Ajiza. Dutch Rose was well behind Amulet in a handicap at Ascot in the spring and tends to reserve her best for York. She's already been found wanting four times in this grade as well.
