Dancing Approach finished closer at Wolverhampton last time without looking like winning. A similar comment applies to Mums The Law, who steps up in trip along with Indie Angel. The latter failed to show the expected progress over 7f here last time and John Gosden also runs Lake Lucerne, who sports the Godolphin colours along with SYMBOL OF LOVE. The latter is a half-sister to a Listed winner in Germany and Charlie Appleby sent out newcomer and subsequent Group 3 winner Divine Image to win this prize last year. Aventuriere is another newcomer to note as she’s related to five winners all trained by Mark Johnston.
