Majeyda wasn't disgraced ahead of Lady Lara when sixth in the 1000 Guineas and drops in class. Queen Catrine also has her sights lowered having been well beaten in the French equivalent. The unbeaten Muteela made all at Newmarket last time but is there to be shot at by the likes of Psychometry and Coral Mist. Goodwood winner Wee Jean could also go well but a chance is taken on DUTCH COURAGE. The latter has to reverse latest running at York with Lady Lara but beat Adhwaa, Qawaasem and Midnite Angel to finish fourth and should be in the firing-line. Crowley's Law continues to progress but is upped a further 9lb for a win at Leicester while Aluminia has been making hay in much lower grade races on the all-weather and will find this tougher. Odisseia and Graceful Grit are overseas challengers worth noting.
