Lemon Drop Red finally got off the mark at Brighton a week ago but may struggle to follow up off a 6lb penalty, while Merton Lady and Rainy Champion had both looked to be going the right way before running shockers on their latest starts. Time Travel and Pertemps Networks have the past form to figure if they can find it, but a chance is taken on DYNAMIC IDOL. He pulled too hard on his comeback at Newbury and gets first-time blinkers here as a result. The form of last year's third at Kempton behind Saturday's unlucky Lancashire Oaks runner-up Vita Nova stands out in this company and Mikael Magnusson's charge could prove a cut above these if the headgear does its job.
