Oscula showed improved form on rain-softened ground at Deauville last month so drying conditions may not be in her favour and she was behind Hello You in a Group 2 here in July. The latter seems sure to give a good account again as she has a similar chance to Sweet Solera winner Majestic Glory on the form book, though the latter does look the more progressive. Jumbly defends an unbeaten record but needs to take a big step forward. Those behind have yet to frank the form of GIRL ON FILM’s maiden victory here but Ralph Beckett’s filly will have come on a bundle for that run and entries in this and the Fillies’ Mile suggest she is highly regarded.
