WHITSTABLE NATIVE is the only one of these with recent winning form and given Darren Egan's claim negates a 5lb rise, she can follow-up her recent win at Brighton. July Days is back on the same mark as when scoring over C&D in February and can figure while Prince Of Passion posted a better effort over a mile at Kempton last time and a first-time visor may bring further improvement. Gala Spirit won a poor handicap over track and trip last year and she looks next best on her return from a lay-off as the remainder are all struggling at present.
