Verdict

There are some very choicely-bred newcomers in this including the Kingman filly Reehaam and Frankel's daughter Queen Daenerys, who is a half-sister to four winners and cost $500,000 as a yearling. Stars In The Sky is by Galileo out of a dual Group 3 winner and was a €525,000 purchase while Cloak Of Spirits will also be expected to win races. However, we’ll side with the experience of DUBAI PARADISE as the Godolphin filly was very well backed on debut at Newmarket a couple of weeks ago and will have come on a bundle for the outing. Game And Set finished second over 6f at HQ last month but was beaten eight lengths and will need more to be competitive here.
