AMOUR PROPRE is the highest rated of these and went close to winning on last year's seasonal debut in similar company. He ended last year with a defeat of classy sprinter Sole Power in a Group 3 race at the Curragh and is the one to beat on his return. Noble Storm won this last year but has plenty to find with selection on later running at Goodwood and he finished behind Duchess Dora in soft ground at Chester last time. The latter should be thereabouts again but Fratellino has gone off the boil since beating Spirit Quartz at Lingfield in March and Chunky Diamond may need the outing.
