Not Now Blondie scored over 5f here last time but her previous efforts over this longer trip leave plenty to be desired and MEET ME HALFWAY is preferred. She was beaten a length over 6f at Lingfield earlier this month and won't have to improve much on that to come out best here. Glossy Posse, Municipal and We Are City have been competing in tougher races on the Turf and can finish closer while Melodee Princess showed a bit more on her Polytrack debut at Lingfield and could get involved now handicapping for the first time.
