Both Madeira Girl and Confusing scored on their latest outings but will find life tougher in this. Rainbow Beauty won at this venue last year and has leading claims today while Northern Meeting should also figure dropping down in class. ELNADWA has struggled since winning her maiden here last season but posted a much better effort when a close-up third on her return to this track last week so gets the vote.
