Salford Red Devil has his fourth start over track and trip and went close again last time having won his maiden last month. Quatuor made all to win the Lily Agnes here in May beating Blithe Spirit in the process and Ifwecan made nearly every yard when successful at Ascot in the same month. Steventon Star has found life tough in Listed company since landing a double early in the season but with so many likely to be vying for the lead ROUGH COURTE may surprise them all. The only hold-up horse in the field, Mick Channon's filly will need the gaps to appear, but is good enough to take advantage if things fall her way.
