Only a length separated Gifted Girl and LADYS FIRST in a Group 3 at Epsom last month when Ultrasonic was behind. Richard Fahey's filly improved on that effort when chasing home Duntle in a Group 2 at Ascot and deserves to win another decent prize. She has the beating of Sweetnessandlight on the form book while Newmarket second Forgive has plenty to prove in this higher grade. Oojooba had Hippy Hippy Shake behind when third at Goodwood in May, however, and could have place claims while Semayyel is eased in grade and caused a huge upset at Yarmouth last year when last racing in Listed company. The O'Meara pair Dutch Rose and Switcher look out of their depth however.
