SAJJHAA look the one to beat in this. She ran well in heavy ground in a Group 1 in Italy last month on her first start since chasing home the top-class Izzi Top at York back in May. The Godolphin filly will go very close with a similar effort in this company. Emirates Queen has come up short in Listed company so far, though she still has every chance on her best form, and the remainder all have something to find with the principals on today's terms. Dorcas Lane went close at Newmarket on her return from a lay-off and had finished ahead of Khawlah earlier but Raasekha improved for the drop back to a mile last time and today's trip is a worry for her. Surprise Moment is the third Godolphin representative and could prove best of the rest on her earlier victory at Newmarket.
