Amelia Hull dead-heated for first place here earlier in the month but was beaten in a seller at this track on Monday. TAXIFORMISSBYRON makes more appeal as she defied a 6lb rise to record a double at Kempton last week and Michael Herrington's filly has scope for further progress. Armada Bay has been placed over shorter trips at the track this month but Una Bella Cosa is preferred as she was sent off favourite in a tougher race here last time and ran well to finish third. The remainder look up against it and are harder to fancy.
