Easy Terms was superbly placed to win four in a row last year and she made a winning reappearance at Pontefract. This is a step up in class, however, and the mare is now on a career-high mark. Deauville Flyer dead-heated with stable companion Mirrored over 1m2f at Pontefract last month and is only a couple of pounds higher. He has to go on the short-list with the extra quarter-mile in his favour, though Tim Easterby also saddles fellow C&D winner Crackentorp. War Poet comes here off the back of a cosy win at Doncaster but Lyric Street and Spifer may need this. Tepmokea and Warlu Way are capable of running well fresh, however, and Bridle Belle is starting to look well handicapped but the one to beat is probably CAUCUS. Lightly-raced, he wasn't beaten far in a hot handicap at Newmarket off this mark on his reappearance and will strip fitter here.
