Lady Kildare beat nothing of note when winning a maiden here on her reappearance and will need to improve back in handicap company, while it was only a seller that Roodee Queen won at Wolverhampton in April. C&D winner Ingleby Exceed returns from lay-off and Consistant is anything but so a tentative vote goes to FAST SHOT. He's yet to win but shaped well when third on his recent return at Musselburgh and has scope for further progress. Misty Morn makes most appeal of the remainder.
