Nova Champ is not easily dismissed on her earlier placed efforts on the Turf but has to be forgiven a poor effort at Doncaster earlier this month. FRANGIPANNI is just preferred on the back of a fourth over track and trip with more to come. Green Music posted a better effort over 7f last time and Tahchee finished closer when stepped up to the same trip at Wolverhampton. The remainder are harder to fancy with Spring Fling making most appeal of the newcomers.
