Vazira lost her unbeaten record in a Group 1 at Longchamp last month but gives every indication she'll relish this longer trip. The Aga Khan's filly is certainly one for the short-list but Inchila hasn't had much time to recover from an excellent fourth in the Oaks at Epsom and is a little one-paced. The Park Hill at Doncaster in September might be a more realistic target. Newmarket maiden winner Wonderstruck is interesting upped in grade while Bright Approach got going too late in the Cheshire Oaks and also still has plenty of scope. York winner Lustrous should stay and Italian Oaks heroine Final Score is still unbeaten. BRACELET didn't have the pace to get competitive in the 1000 Guineas but she wasn't disgraced and this should be much more to her liking. The Ballydoyle filly can bounce back here and Joseph prefers her to Terrific.
