Neither Maysville nor Ding Ding have shown much in nurseries so far and the remainder all go handicapping for the first time. Raajis was dropped back to 5f last time so her ability to stay today's trip is in question and stablemate Habdab makes more appeal despite a five-length defeat over a mile at Chepstow. Ultraviolet appears to have stronger claims than both Thewandaofu and Maysville on her efforts over 7f but a chance is taken on TUBEANIE. The latter finished a close-up fourth at Salisbury last month just behind a subsequent winner and Ryan Tate's 5lb allowance further helps her cause.
