Those at the top of the handicap are on recovery missions after poor efforts last time and Candycakes steps up in trip along with Dutch Diamond and Ukrainian Princess. The latter has lost her way since going close at Nottingham in May while Scarlet Belle is upped in grade today. This looks between Caskelena and OPENLY. The former won her maiden over 1m2f at Newcastle last month but the form could have worked out better and James Fanshawe's filly is preferred. She went close to opening her account at Kempton last week and any further improvement would be enough to land this.
