Several recent winners dominate the weights in this with DESOLAIT just preferred to the hat-trick seeking Pickworth. Nigel Twiston-Davies' mare got back to winning ways at Hexham last month over 2m1f on heavy ground and, on that evidence, should have no problem with the extra on this much easier track. Pickworth is now on a career-high mark while Cresswell Bramble only beat one home over 2m7f at Worcester last time and needs faster conditions than she'll encounter today. Southway Star has been found wanting in this grade in the past while Tackswop usually finds at least one too good so the unexposed Rhyming Sky may be the pick of the remainder therefore.
