Dartrix arrives in good form but steps up in class along with Black Annis Bower. Meandmyshadow also has something to prove in this grade but Strange Music moves in the opposite direction and may figure if forgiven a poor run in Listed company last time. Hopes N Dreams threw in a bad one at Goodwood during the week having won a claimer over track and trip beforehand and a purely speculative vote goes to DREAM MAKER. Tim Easterby's filly has slipped a few pounds down the weights this season and it could be her turn today after hinting at a return to form when third at Newcastle a week ago.
