Recent winner Solar Spirit had the measure of Green Park at Catterick but was below par at Doncaster on Sunday when fifth-placed Whozthecat finished a couple of lengths ahead. SPINATRIX makes more appeal as she's a winner in soft ground and her recent placed efforts at Ripon suggest Michael Dods' filly is capable of scoring off her current mark. C&D winner Trade Secret had an off-day here last time but is not easily dismissed while the returning Bonnie Charlie makes more appeal than recent winning plater Fol Hollow.
