CATALINAS DIAMOND is given one more chance. She's gone backwards since last year's fifth in the Queen Mary but showed she still retains some ability when going close at Salisbury last time and this contest doesn't look any tougher. Connections continue to persevere with the lightly-raced Tomodachi though she was well beaten when starting a short-price favourite on her only start last season, while Pinch Of Posh should be capable of better and Quest For Silver could prove best of the newcomers.
