None of these have experience of the surface but ANNIE'S ROSE has the best form on Turf. That's not saying much as she never threatened the winner when fourth at Musselburgh on her debut but Bryan Smart's runners usually handle the Fibresand and she gets the nod. Maidana is less exposed than Highland Princess and makes more appeal on that basis but Royal Bushida and Britain have yet to show any worthwhile form. The newcomer Wilberfoss is related to winners and won't have to be a world beater to get involved in this.
