Blue Tiger is getting closer but has had plenty of chances and Palmette was a big disappointment when favourite at Yarmouth last time. She gets first-time headgear as a consequence but has a bit to find on earlier form at Folkestone with AL JANADEIRYA. The latter finished runner-up on that occasion with a couple of subsequent winners behind and looks up to going one better here on that form. Dawn Glory could only improve on a poor debut effort and duly did so when fifth at Newmarket last time but the remainder are harder to fancy.
