FLOATING ALONG beat Al Manaal and Finesse over 7f at Warwick last month. At the revised weights, there wouldn't be much between the trio here but we'll stick with William Haggas' filly who has improved since getting her head in front. New Falcon may do better back over her winning trip and in a first-time visor but the handicapper isn't about to relinquish his grip on Maid A Million and Strictly Ballroom and Fanzine will find easier opportunities. Queen Aggie was a decent juvenile but has struggled this year.
