Those with experience look to have a similar level of form. Miss Avonbridge and Sweet Vintage showed some promise on their respective debuts although Bright Glow's recent fourth came over C&D and she may just have the edge. Still, one of the newcomers could easily prove good enough in this company and they include Liliana and Sandaura who are both related to winners. BOUYRIN is the one who takes the eye, however, as the 120,000gns filly is a half-sister to Group 3 winner Alsindi and Michael Bell's filly gets the nod.
