Diffident Beats got the better of higher-rated rivals when winning a seller over 6f here last week and this doesn't look much tougher. One Penny Piece drops back down in class and isn't out of this but another chance goes to LADY STELLA. The latter won over 7f at Brighton before floundering over 6f on her handicap debut at Leicester - Rae Guest's filly should be more at home in this. Princess Tamay has a shout on today's terms but will need to step up on her recent efforts to figure.
