The seven-year-old ROMANTICIZE was having only her ninth start when scoring over track and trip last month. Rated much higher in her younger days, Jason Ward's mare can defy a 3lb rise and follow-up. Ryedale Dancer finished less than a length behind Whipphound, who runs in the previous race, last time and she could figure along with Glennten, who has blinkers applied for the first time. Sannibel and You'relikemefrank continue to slide down the weights without showing any improvement but Jawking is worth noting on his reappearance and first start for local trainer Frank Sheridan.
