MARIA LOMBARDI is the obvious choice in this having won on her racecourse debut at Yarmouth. Progress is expected from Jeremy Noseda's filly over this extra furlong and she should have too much for chief danger Ceelo. The latter has Santo Prince well behind when third at Leicester last month and will be in the mix again with a repeat effort. Jontleman has won twice over 6f but this is tougher than the seller he picked up on the Polytrack here last week.
