It's probably best to put one's faith in the Master of Freemason Lodge and side with MUWAKABA ahead of Bohemian Melody and Shamir. Muwakaba ran on well to make the perfect start to her career despite racing a shade keenly and that trait was again in evidence on her reappearance in a Listed race at York and she failed to get away with it in that company, trailing home in last. She still holds an entry for the Coronation Stakes and is clearly well regarded so can be given another chance in a race where few excite. Rakaan has ability but has been hugely frustrating and is hard to recommend even allowing for an ease in grade whilst Syrian is easing down the weights but could do with showing a little more whilst the blinkered Gumnd has been well beaten in races contested by that pair since running well at Goodwood when allowed a soft lead. Kurtanella should be involved whilst Shamir is of keen interest on his all-weather form but the biggest threat may be posed by Bohemian Melody as his all-weather form is very solid and he still appeals as being reasonably treated but the same may also be true of Muwakaba.
