Miss Bootylishes and Kai Mook still look too high in the weights, but Wishformore is on a fair mark if she can find her best form. Wolverhampton winner Lilli Palmer has claims after a respectable third over a longer trip at Brighton last week, but Sweet Possession has now gone 20 outings without a win. VERY WELL RED turned in a couple of modest efforts in better company on turf last month but can race off a much lower mark back on the Polytrack. She's only a pound higher than when scoring at Lingfield in March and Peter Hiatt's mare gets the vote to take this.
