Lyric Piece is interesting now tackling a mile in a handicap. The Dutch Art filly is much preferred to the exposed and reluctant Blue Nova but Emulating, representing last year's winning trainer, has to be of interest after his third at Goodwood while Sunblazer has only found one too good in his last two starts at Wolverhampton. IVANHOE is much improved since being sent over 1m and was unlucky at Chepstow two runs ago before running Divine Angel to a neck at Windsor. He makes his debut on the all-weather today but certainly wouldn't be winning out of turn. Run It Twice sprang a surprise at Wolverhampton last time but Club House makes more each-way appeal in this grade.
