Hanaady had the benefit of experience when beating Ellencarne, Yarralumla and New Year Honours at Nottingham and will not find it easy to confirm that form here under a penalty. As well as Ellencarne, the Gosdens also run the 360,000gns Frankel filly A CAPPELLA and Shaara. Rab Havlin’s mount looks most interesting and a high draw might be an advantage in a field this size on the straight course. Godolphin’s newcomer Show Lights is by Dubawi and a half-sister to a middle-distance winner so also makes plenty of appeal while Amanzoe can only improve on her 10th at Newmarket and is less exposed than A La Francaise. Ready To Shine, who was a 340,000gns yearling, may do best of the rest with Oblong Song bred for middle-distances.
