Solvanna was beaten only a short-head in a handicap over track and trip last month and should be thereabouts but Punditry has had plenty of chances and came up short once again when only fifth at Lingfield last time behind third-placed VELVETINA. The latter was returning from nearly a year off the track so is expected to improve today and can open her account. Jareeda and Loved One are others likely to step up on their recent efforts and figure while newcomer Parker Ridge is worth noting as he's a half-brother to high-class Arc winner Peintre Celebre amongst others.
