Nicky Henderson has a very good strike rate here and the handicapper has finally granted SPRINGINHERSTEP (NAP) a little leeway. She wasn't happy on a fast surface at Stratford last time and should be capable of giving weight to these. Dealing River finished tailed off at Huntingdon on Monday and may be due a rest while Tiradia is still 16lb higher than when winning at Taunton in April. My Guardian Angel may be the danger, therefore, having only been beaten a neck on the Flat at Newmarket earlier this month.
