Red Charmer has yet to encounter soft ground though Lilac Lace appeared to cope with the surface when fourth on her debut at Redcar. She makes more appeal than Lambert Pen but may find READY too good for her here. The latter finished runner-up in heavy going before another good effort at Warwick earlier this month and can get off the mark for Garry Moss in this. Sakhees Romance has some improving to do to figure and Red Chubbs could prove best of the newcomers.
