SRINAGAR GIRL scored on the Polytrack in January and, after a recent fourth at Lingfield, she can race off a lower mark back on Turf. Today's amateur, Rachel King has ridden three winners at this track so Clive Cox' filly gets the nod. Edgware Road scored at Kempton last time but this longer trip could prove a problem and Balmoral Castle makes more appeal having won over 1m1f at Goodwood under today's rider last week. Flag Of Glory can be given a chance while Laconicos won one of these events over track and trip last season.
