Ryan While's claim will help Coconut Kisses but it was only a seller he won at Thirsk 12 days ago. STAR REQUEST's second to Bachotheque at Carlisle was franked when the winner followed up in a decent nursery at Ayr and Keith Dalgleish's filly can finally get off the mark dropping down a furlong. Ena Sharples probably needs to step up on what she's shown so far to figure but Sandsend was only beaten a neck when favourite at Beverley last time, though continues to edge up the weights. Charlemagne Diva may be best of the rest.
