Even Bolder doesn't look like ending his long losing run anytime soon but his Newbury conqueror Rebecca Romero is chasing a hat-trick after another win at Windsor last month, though is a further 4lb higher here. Bilash should confirm Nottingham running with Athwaab on slightly better terms, but Atlantic Beach has been beaten in lesser company of late and this looks too tough for Avrilo and Brighton runner-up Commanding Presence. Stuart Williams' stable has run into a bit of form, as demonstrated by STRABOE's win in a similar race at Folkestone 15 days ago. He raced on the slower stands side when behind Bilash and Athwaab at Nottingham earlier and can reverse that running here en route to success.
