Imaginary World, Gift Of Silence, Diamond Blue and Fab Lolly all failed to cope with a rise in the weights last time having won on their penultimate starts. It remains to be seen how RUFOOF gets on after finally opening her account on the Turf track at Lingfield but she's only 2lb higher today so gets the nod to follow up. Dance For Georgie is upped another 3lb for finishing runner-up at Catterick though she did finish ahead of the re-opposing Graceful Act and a few more of these on that occasion.
