Kenton Street has dropped to his lowest mark for some time and showed signs of a return to form over a mile here last time. Slippers Madden has a rare ride on the Flat and his mount, Lily's Star, found 1m3f much too far a fortnight ago after scoring over a mile but this looks too short. Aristotelian has ability greater than his lowly mark suggests but has run in snatches on his last two starts so MRS BATT could be the one to be on. Still a maiden on the all-weather, she had little racing last year but made a winning reappearance after a long break at Limerick in April and can run from a 3lb lower mark with her young rider's claim an extra bonus.
