ROSE GARNET has a poor strike rate but went close at Lingfield a fortnight ago and a similar effort should see her take this. Very First Blade also found only one too good last time but that was over 7f on the Fibresand at Southwell and Masked Dance recorded his only win on the all-weather so far at the same track. Daneglow has won over the minimum trip here and Flow Chart won last year's renewal off a higher mark. Both could figure in this on a going day.
