Shama's Song may prove best of those with experience after taking second at Newcastle on her reappearance. Some Site will appreciate the longer trip and the same comment applies to Button Down but Catadupa has shown little so far. However, one of the newcomers may be up to landing this and Hidden Gold can include Group 2 winner Masterstroke among her winning relatives. She should be noted for any strong support but TOO THE STARS is just preferred. John Gosden's filly is the second foal of dual Guineas winner Finsceal Beo and gets a speculative vote.
