Ken Condon on Mamba Noire: "Our filly will be stepping up to seven furlongs on Saturday, but the way she's finished her last two races is very encouraging. If there's a bit of ease in the ground I think that would suit her.
"The ground was just too quick for her in Ascot, but she did well physically after that to come out fairly quickly and ran a good race behind Clemmie at the Curragh.
"We felt it was an improved performance again at Newmarket and obviously the form looks very good.
"Nyaleti has obviously come out and won very well and I know the boys at Ballydoyle hold Clemmie in very high regard. She looks a Classic filly in the making. She's come home well in her last two races, so we'll see how she gets on over seven furlongs."
Marco Botti on Capla Temptress: "She seems well and we've been happy with her since Newmarket.
"This is a step up in class, obviously, but she was quite impressive the other day and after two runs and two wins she's entitled to take her chance.
"I don't think she's ground dependent, but being by Lope De Vega, she probably handles cut in the ground better than others. I'm looking forward to running her and finding out how good she is."
Richard Fahey on Dance Diva: "She has taken her racing extremely well and is a filly who has done nothing wrong. We hope the step up to seven furlongs will bring about a bit of improvement here. If it does, she must have a leading chance.
Chris Richardson, of owners Cheveley Park Stud's other runner Juliet Capulet: "uliet Capulet is a progressive filly and John is very sweet on her. We bought her to run in races like this and it will be interesting to see how she performs."
Tony Nerses, racing manager to Jousi's owners Saleh Al Homaizi and Imad Al Sagar: "We think quite highly of her and I think she'll outrun her price. She's bred very nicely, by Dubawi out of a Galileo mare who was a Listed winner, so she'll go on the ground. She might surprise a few."
