Respect Me disappointed last time but his earlier fourth at Sandown gives him a shout while William Buick's presence on She's Late suggests she has stronger claims than Phiz.

Third when sent off favourite on her reappearance at Newbury, the Galileo filly will relish today's longer trip and can open her account.
