Sunset Shore looks no nearer to winning while Stomp has yet to threaten and needs to improve. Poetic Choice is upped in class after winning at Wolverhampton and Nova Princesse is preferred having won a maiden race at the same track last time. Soft ground was a legitimate excuse for Concrete Mac at Goodwood last time and he has every chance on his earlier second at Chepstow, but DJINNI gets the vote. Richard Hannon's filly failed to stay the 7f on her latest start but had won with plenty in hand over today's trip at Windsor before that.
