"...is a half-sister to numerous winners, including the very smart winner up to 1¼m Rio de La Plata, and has shown enough to suggest she can win a maiden like this."

18:15 - SWENDAB (5) has been in fine fettle of late and scored for the second time under Rossa Ryan when toughing it out at Wolverhampton last month. He seeks a fourth win in his last five starts and, though his sole defeat came over C&D, he can go in again in the opener. Fast Act and Entertaining Ben look big dangers, but a better value option could be ZIPEDEEDODAH (2), a C&D winner who looks attractively handicapped.

18:45 - SHORT HEAD (11) was far too green to do herself justice on debut at Kempton two weeks ago and, with the drop in trip not expected to be a problem, can find the required improvement to beat standard-setter Poetic Imagination. Kath's Lustre and Mount Victoria also remain with potential, especially the former who improved markedly on her first start for Richard Hughes last time.

19:15 - BEAUTIFUL MEMORY (5) is a half-sister to numerous winners, including the very smart winner up to 1¼m Rio de La Plata, and has shown enough to suggest she can win a maiden like this. Heather Lark is the other clear form pick, but she didn't excel over this trip last year, while the quite stoutly-bred newcomer Menuetto appeals as a likely type.

19:45 - COILLTE CAILIN (2) has shaped well on both starts since re-joining Daniel Loughnane and, now granted a more suitable test of stamina, may be able to return to winning ways from what looks an attractive mark (last win off 10 lb higher). Titan Goddess has really struck form of late, winning three of her last four, and is the obvious danger despite some concerns over stamina.

20:15 - Spare Parts is respected, having been undone by the drop in trip/racing wide when failing to land the five-timer here on Thursday, however she has had a busy time of late and preference is for DOR'S LAW (2). She followed up two solid overs over a mile here when winning at Kempton last time and a 4 lb higher mark doesn't look insurmountable.Simply Clever may give him most to think about.

20:45 - AUTHENTIC ART (3) left his previous form behind when just failing to open his account at Wolverhampton earlier this month and should have more to give yet after only four career starts. With that form franked since, he can take the finale. Global Wonder, who sports a hood for the first time, and recent Lingfield fifth The Night King head the list of dangers.
