The first runner in the event is the talented Queen Power for Sir Michael Stoute, who heads into the meeting sporting a 21% strike rate.
The daughter of Shamardal has been highly consistent throughout her career placing in seven of her 10 outings, whilst also going on to win twice.
Tried between a mile and 10f throughout her career, last season she was seen finishing second in the Group Two Dahlia Stakes at Newmarket behind the smart Terebellum on seasonal debut.
She then dropped to a mile at Ascot in the Group Two Duke Of Cambridge Stakes and was beaten by the smart Nazeef, who went on to land two Group One events in that year.
The mare was outclassed in Group One company next time out finishing fourth in the Nassau Stakes, but was then dropped in class at Salisbury and was a better third.
Queen Power returned as a five year old this term and finished a head second on her first run in the Dahlia Stakes behind Lady Bowthorpe.
That run should set her up perfectly for this event, but she is now without a win in seven and needs to stop that run.
