DIAMOND DAISY is worth a shot at this level; Black Dahlia and Cheam Forever rate as the biggest dangers. Cheam Forever likes to race with the pace and is holding his form well. The handicapper may have his measure just now, though. Black Dahlia picks up 6lb extra for winning at Leicester last week - which obviously clouds the picture where she is concerned. She needs to post a career best effort to overcome the burden today. Therefore, it can pay to side with Diamond Daisy, who has really started to flourish of late. Ann Duffield's charge stays the trip well and, with the ground not anticipated to be a problem; this much improved three-year-old makes plenty of appeal for a punt in this company.
