Mahmood Al Zarooni won this last year though Godolphin don't have a brilliant record on the track. Their two representatives here, Willowing and Naalatt, are unlikely to become stable stars but both are open to improvement and the former looks the better of the pair on her close third at Doncaster. Marco Botti hasn't had many runners here but so far has a 100% record and Summer Dream should make a bold bid to maintain the run. She has come up against some serious opposition in her three races to date and though unable to cope at Ascot last time though ground that day was probably too quick for her. ZERO GAME made her debut on fast ground at Newmarket and was taken off her feet before staying on at the finish. She is entered in several top events later including the Fillies' Mile so will need to win this to justify her place and is taken to do so.
