Highly-promising Tamayuz filly who made it 3 out of 3 in juvenile campaign upped to listed class at Newmarket in October. Work to do out of the stalls but she seems sure to relish this trip.

Returned with good third of 19 in maiden at Naas (8f, heavy) in March. Work to do in form terms and doesn't possess the scope of some of these tackling this new trip.

Dubawi sister to several winners, including high-class Too Darn Hot and very smart Lah Ti Dar. Runner-up both starts 4 months apart over 1¼m and most unlikely she's reached her limit.

Won first 2 starts last year and signed off campaign with an excellent fourth in the Group 1 Fillies' Mile at Newmarket in October. That is the best form on offer and she's bred to stay well.

Maiden after 5 starts but shaped well when just failing to reel in the winner on last month's reappearance at Leopardstown. Stamina looks her forte and has to command respect for top connections.

Won 10-runner maiden at Leopardstown (1m) on debut in July, having to pick her way through. Failed to meet expectations in Group 3 company a month later but pedigree is an ongoing recommendation.

Runner-up both starts last year and matched that form when making all in 8-runner maiden at Kempton a month ago (11f). This demands a lot more.

Forecasts

Dubai Fountain (13/8), La Joconde (9/2), Darlectable You (9/2), Zeyaadah (5/1), Nicest (9/1), Quenelle D'or (11/1), Ahandfulofsummers (28/1)

Verdict

Typically for a Mark Johnston runner, DUBAI FOUNTAIN stood up really well to a busy 2-y-o campaign, signing off with an excellent fourth in a Group 1. She looks an uncomplicated ride and will stay this far, so appeals as being the one to beat. Zeyaadah defends an unbeaten record but cannot afford to miss the break at this track, while Nicest is out of an Irish Oaks winner so should relish this.
