Regal Heiress was sent off a well-backed favourite in an Ascot maiden last month but found little when push came to shove and could only manage third. INTERACTION was a couple of lengths behind on that occasion, but was making her debut and is fancied to reverse the form with improvement likely. Phoenix City returned from an absence with an improved effort at Kempton last week and should go well, but the remaining trio have a bit to find with Bashama making most appeal of those.
