GLADIATRIX has won four on the bounce and three of those victories came at this track. She returned a three-length winner here last week and clearly hasn't stopped improving yet. Gull Rock is another on the upgrade though she only prevailed by a head on her handicap debut at Leicester with Lady Bayside back in fourth, while Stonescrabtomorrow had Rambo Will and Forest Edge behind when a close-up fourth at Windsor last time. Emiratesdotcom usually goes well here and is another to consider.
