Musicora has leading claims on the back of an emphatic win at Leicester. She's up 5lb for that but Captain Midnight failed to cope with a 6lb penalty last time and has been raised another 4lb since. Dutch Interior makes his handicap bow having won over the minimum trip at this track and Rosso Corsa has past form over 7f that gives her a chance. RED LADY was outclassed in the Albany Stakes at Ascot when last at the track but won her maiden in good style earlier. Brian Meehan's filly is fancied to get back on track in this more suitable company.
