Lucky Diva has gone close over C&D on her last couple of starts but has been raised 4lb for her troubles. She was ahead of Dream Catcher last time but behind runner-up JOSIE'S DREAM. Jo Hughes' charge finished runner-up again over a shorter trip here last time and gets another chance to finally open his account. Captain Oats should figure on his placed form at Chepstow over today's distance and blinkers replace cheekpieces on Isobella, third at Goodwood last month when stepped up to 2m for the first time.
