Aubrietia has been scintillating form on the Polytrack and Fibresand over the last couple of months. She's also won on soft going on Turf so should handle underfoot conditions and, though having plenty to find on official figures, Alan McCabe's filly should go well given her guaranteed fitness. Prodigality could be a sprinter worth following this season but may just need this while veteran Barons Spy also makes his seasonal reappearance, though has won three times around here. JUSTINEO comes out best at the weights and hasn't been disgraced at Meydan since the turn of the year. He gets the nod if reproducing his second to Captain Ramius at Doncaster in October. All-weather winner Jack My Boy is preferred to the returning Heartsong of the others.
