Looking for some guidance on who to back? Take a look at our key facts below around the runners in the race.

The favourite

Favourite Azure Blue won over course and distance two runs back, where she beat Cuban Breeze who also runs this afternoon. The three-year-old continues to make good progress for her yard, who won this race 12 months ago, and with conditions in her favour, it's easy to see why she leads the market at 3.02/1.

Market rival

Azure Blue's main market rival is Tarhib 4.03/1, who has won twice in the last 11 months. This lightly raced filly has only had five runs in that time, which includes as second on the AW over at Chelmsford.

She's due to go up 4lb, so escapes a penalty today, and there's no surprise to see her rated higher in the future.

Each way swing

Loves Me Likearock 7.5013/2 has yet to add to her two-year-old wins but has ran well in defeat, which included a fourth over course and distance back in April. However, William Buick takes the ride this afternoon and after a promising third at Newcastle when last seen, there's every chance this three-year-old can disrupt the top of the market.

Market mover

Jane Chapple-Hyam's Bellosa has been well backed from 23.022/1 into 13.012/1, who admittedly looked a star in the making after two wins at this track last spring, which also included a listed event.

She's yet to find her form this year, but has had a wind operation and is now tried in blinkers. A return to less testing ground may also suit, and Betfair punters have been keen to support her.
