White Russian is still a maiden and appears to have two ways of running but she was only beaten a nose at Sandown last month and Kieran Shoemark's claim more than makes up for a small weight rise. Jontleman is starting to look well handicapped and Shifting Star is in good form, though still climbing the weights. AL'S MEMORY does most of his winning on the Polytrack but has been successful on Turf and is 10lb lower. He could be worth a second look in this after an encouraging reappearance here last month as Perfect Mission faded tamely last time at Chepstow.
