A competitive end to proceedings as Fleeting Smile scored here before a defeat in Listed company at Ascot and her owner is also represented by Estiqaama. The latter defied a 6lb rise to score by a neck at Sandown last time but only succeeded in annoying the handicapper as she's up another harsh-looking 9lb for that. SAUCY MINX chases a hat-trick having recorded a double at Goodwood and counted Broadway Duchess among her victims on the latest occasion. A 4lb rise doesn't look insurmountable and she gets the vote. Magic Of Reality makes her handicap bow after landing the odds over track and trip but the form has been let down since.
