Choral Festival has been in good form over 1m4f but it's not certain this drop in trip will suit the five-year-old, who may also be back in the handicapper's grip now. Sweet Secret should be all the better for last month's run at Windsor but Woop Woop and Lady Barastar appear to be going backwards and Out Of The Storm has also had plenty of chances. CHATTERER stepped up markedly on her debut run 10 days earlier when landing a maiden at Lingfield last month. She almost certainly has more to offer and can follow up here at the chief expense of Full Bloom, who has shown promise on the Polytrack but makes her debut on turf following a break.
