Integral won in Listed and Group 3 company last season and was only beaten a length by Sky Lantern in the Sun Chariot here in September. She has the best form in this but could just need the run and Andre Fabre hasn't sent ESOTERIQUE over for the good of her health. She got stuck out wide in a Group 3 at Saint-Cloud last month but kept on well and could make the most of her guaranteed sharpness. German raider Quaduna arrives off the back of a Listed win but has a penalty to carry and Zurigha is just as interesting having made a winning reappearance on the Polytrack at Kempton. Odeliz was just beaten at the Curragh in March but more is needed here.
