AUTUMN LILY is clear at the head of weights on account of winning easily at Ascot on her handicap bow. The assessor has taken no chances and raised her 12lb but the Godolphin filly could well turn out better than a handicapper and is preferred to the Hannon duo. The latter runs Windsor winner Oriel but stablemate Gold Top makes more appeal on her earlier win over today's trip at Newbury. Cornish Path just failed to catch the winner over track and trip last time but is preferred to the more exposed pair Lily Rules and Sandsman's Girl while Yarmouth winner Lady In Blue is another to note handicapping for the first time.
