Blue Nova has been a losing favourite over 7f here on a couple of occasions and may be ridden with more restraint today while plenty of use has been made of Willowing in her three starts. Fair Comment pulled hard and faded in the closing stages over a mile at Goodwood last time while Beam Of Light took up the running a fair way from home when winning over 7f at Folkestone last month. With so much early pace on show, another chance goes to SIGNATURE DISH, disappointing when fancied at Beverley last time but not without a chance on her earlier third at Chester.
