Flashlight has won two of his three starts this year and should be in the mix despite a penalty. Bold Prediction and Rangi are other recent winners on the all-weather but both have plenty on their plate in this better company. Maiden winners Sanjuro and Al Udeid have lots of scope on their seasonal debuts and are worth noting, but Fantacise has something to prove now after another poor effort on her reappearance. The latter's stablemate Polski Max ended last year with victory at York and is not easily dismissed although QUEEN AGGIE is just preferred today. She didn't fare too badly on her comeback run in Listed company at Lingfield and a repeat of her fourth in the Rockingham at York in August would see her go very close.
