Telegraph was sent off favourite for a maiden over a slightly longer trip here two weeks ago but found one too good and this is a lot more competitive. De Repente beat Memory Styx and Lilo Lil over course and distance earlier this month and should make another bold bid, despite a 6lb higher mark, while Bounty Girl has the pace to take advantage of her inside draw and is another to consider. LA TINTA BAY has won two out of three and easily beat Primitorio at Brighton. She's a sharp sort and, as her only defeat so far came over 7f, can take the honours again here. Secret Romance got off to a winning start at Bath, though hasn't been done any favours by the handicapper.
