Mar Mar drops back down in class but doesn't look particularly well handicapped on this year's form. Wolverhampton winner Athenian has to race off a 4lb higher mark on her return to action while Kyleakin Lass has shown her best to date over the minimum trip. Jillnextdoor is hard to win with but Holley Shiftwell and Lady Horatia could go well given both went close on their latest starts. But it could pay to stick with SOULVILLE in this. She steps up in class after scoring at Goodwood but won with plenty in hand and hasn't stopped improving yet.
