Applause For Amy came up short in her hat-trick bid here last month and has been raised a further 5lb since. She may have to settle for a place again while According To Sarah squandered an easier opportunity at Uttoxeter last month off an 8lb lower mark. Y A Bon was beaten in a seller at Exeter in March and hasn't been seen since. ALMOST GEMINI was beaten less than a length over today's distance at Wetherby on good ground in the spring. He's proved inconsistent since but a repeat of that effort would probably suffice here.
