Consider Yourself ended a long losing run with victory at Brighton last week and has a penalty to contend with. VIRGINIA GALILEI showed her first worthwhile form when runner-up at Windsor last time and with further progress expected on her handicap bow, she makes most appeal in this. Travelling is slipping down the weights but showing no improvement for it though the likes of Twin Shadow and Divine Pamina are not easily dismissed handicapping for the first time. Director's Dream finished closer over a slightly longer trip here last time and could be in the shake-up.
