Sofi's Spirit should improve but was beaten by a 57-rated rival when receiving 5lb last time and faces a stiff task against PROJECTISLE. Kevin Ryan's filly made all for a 10 length success at Southwell and need only transfer a modicum of that form to complete the double. Multisure steps up to this trip for the first time and any improvement will see her in the mix while Lambert Pen has run three times on soft ground and his pedigree suggests he will be suited by Polytrack.
