Roedean has been threatening to lose her maiden tag and makes a quick return having found a Marco Botti-trained newcomer too good at this track last week. Botti runs REDCLUE today and, though the latter has some improvement to find on the evidence of last month's debut, first-time blinkers should help his cause and he gets the nod. Bulldog Beasley is another expected to do better wearing blinkers for the first time after three starts in maiden company and the frustrating Miss Astragal should be thereabouts dropped in class.
