There are three older horses in this but none of the trio make much appeal. Petticoat Lane was desperately unlucky two weeks ago at Sandown and will be fancied to make amends today. But CANOVA did well to finish within a length-and-a-half of the winner at Windsor last time having blown the start. He expended a lot of energy making up the lost ground and might be capable of better. Sealed With A Kiss is making steady progress while Stilla Afton wasn't disgraced on her belated reappearance and could run well at decent odds.
