This looks really tricky as all eight are respected. But Puzzle Time faces a stiff task under top weight following a 143-day absence while Principle Equation, having looked progressive, dropped tamely away on her handicap debut at Goodwood. She's surely better than that and is well worth a market check however PATTERNED (NAP) was third in that Goodwood contest and is the slow-maturing type with which Luca Cumani excels. The Dansili filly is only 1lb higher for that performance and gets the vote here. Dianora and Wojha represent leading yards but do need to improve again on achievements to date.
