THROWING ROSES hasn't really progressed from her debut second at Ripon but that at least showed she handled soft ground. Ollie Pears' filly kept on over 6f at Pontefract last time and may just be good enough to get off the mark here. Yorkshire Icon, a beaten favourite over 6f at Newcastle last time, should be thereabouts again and is preferred to stablemate Tiger Prince while Cielo Rojo can improve over this longer trip. Arthurs Secret, a 21,000gns yearling, is bred to stay but may just need the experience today.
