A market check is advised on the returning Ziggy's Secret but this looks a good opportunity for course winner OLNEY LASS, who looked to be on the way back when third in a higher grade at Brighton 12 days ago. Shelley Birkett's claim is a plus for Honeymoon Express and she continued her upward curve with a comeback second at Newmarket but this looks on the sharp side for Leicester third Broughtons Charm and Amosite is still 4lb higher than for her last victory on Turf. Ada Lovelace has been thereabouts in both starts this term and is probably the pick of the remainder.
