ORDA won her first three starts and was only beaten a length by the speedy No Nay Never in the Prix Morny last month. Rizeena finished third and went on to beat Kiyoshi in the Moyglare Stud Stakes at the Curragh. The drop back to 6f may well suit Charlie Hills' filly and she has the beating of Ascot scorer Princess Noor on earlier form but she does have a bit to find if she's to upset Philippe Sogorb's daughter of Orpen. Joyeuse beat Dorothy B and Alutiq in a Listed race at Salisbury earlier this month and can't be ignored while Come To Heel has won both starts and shouldn't be underestimated but Red Lady may be out of her depth.
