Sir Henry Cecil boasts an impressive strike rate with his three-year-olds at this track and had a winner here last week who beat Fleeting Image. He runs EPOQUE in this and the Oaks entry will appreciate the longer trip having finished a decent third over a mile at HQ on her debut in September. Shestheman went close on her debut at Yarmouth last year with the re-opposing Aniseed in fourth and Still I'm A Star further behind and she makes more appeal than Godolphin's Specific while Sound Hearts, Bite Of The Cherry and the 300,000 dollars purchase Bashaash are all newcomers to note for the future.
