Several unexposed fillies representing powerful yards make this a tough call. Frankie Dettori rides Award on her comeback but stablemate Ski Lift also ran well on her recent debut at Newbury. Royal Seal showed some ability when fourth at Leicester and Seek A Star made the frame on her introduction at the same track. Spirit Raiser wasn't beaten far at Kempton despite her finishing position and the newcomer Elshaadin cost 550,000gns. But SONG OF NORWAY could prove a bit of value given she lost out by only a nose to Muteela at Lingfield and the latter made a winning return at Beverley during the week.
