MELODIZE is fancied to make the most of the weight that she receives from Electric Waves with Royal Liaison and Coconut Ice others to bear in mind. Electric Waves should go well despite the steadier of top weight but she may well need to take a significant step forwards if she's to concede 12lbs to Melodize. William Muir's filly was just three lengths behind her rival at Windsor when both were making their debuts and the booking of title chasing jockey Paul Hanagan suggests that the yard are confident of following up the win at Warwick. Michael Bell and Martin Lane teamed up to great effect a week ago and they do so here with Royal Liaison who has been heading in the right direction in maidens. Coconut Ice has had a few chances but was impressive last time and may now be progressing whilst Wild Hysteria is respected following his Redcar second but Melodize can call the tune.
