Dandy Nicholls runs the recent Southwell winners One Pursuit and Absolute Princess. The former makes his debut on turf while the latter was well beaten at Goodwood last time but in much better company. Cinta and My Mate Jake have shown their best form on the Polytrack so far and Catterick winner Shadow Catcher has yet to try today's trip. Matavia Bay has every chance judged on his second at Haydock last month and he gets assistance from Kieren Fallon here, but a chance is taken on FERRUCCIO, who wasn't beaten far on his recent handicap debut at Newmarket despite a slow start and should be spot on now.
