Qeethaara may have finished third to the progressive Flamborough Breeze over track and trip last week but was still beaten seven lengths and RAPID WATER finished a lot closer to the same rival when fifth here before that. Pat Eddery's charge gets the token vote on that basis. Hawaiian Freeze posted a better effort on her return to action and Back For Tea can make the frame, but course and distance winners Ensnare and Hill Of Dreams both arrive badly out of sorts and are harder to fancy.
