FAKHUUR went close when second on her reappearance over 7f at Kempton. The third horse has since boosted the form by winning and Clive Brittain's filly gets a tentative vote ahead of a trio of well-bred newcomers. Aqua Aura heads those as she cost 350,00 dollars and is a half-sister to Godolphin's St Leger winner Rule Of Law, while Stars In Your Eyes was also an expensive purchase at 210,000gns and is related to numerous winners. Always A Way is another debutant to keep an eye on, with Shieldmaiden and Whey Sauce looking the best of the remainder with experience.
