Lisselan Pleasure finished second in a Brighton seller last time with PANDORICA just behind. The latter was winning off a 9lb higher mark at Goodwood last season and, with an apprentice taking a further 7lb off her back, Bernard Llewellyn's filly appears to have leading claims now. Bute Street scored over a longer trip here last week but is upped 5lb for that while both Crimson Monarch and Asterales have chances judged on their recent placed efforts. Pahente was still beaten a long way when runner-up at Brighton last time and is harder to fancy.
