BOUCHERON has slowly been coming to hand after a season on the sidelines and can take this for the Faheys. The five-year-old was doing all her best work at the finish when fourth over ten furlongs at York last time and the step up in trip will be in her favour. Pocketwood is the main danger having finished third in this race in 2008. He too had a season off but won well at Salisbury last time and is still competitive from this revised mark. Mykingdomforahorse has been a model of consistency all season but is yet to win while Astrodiva wouldn't need to take too big a leap forward from her reappearance effort to feature prominently.
