Lil Sophella defied a career-high mark at Catterick and is only 4lb higher here. Natures Law was third over a mile here last time but Imperial Bond was still beaten eight lengths when second at Catterick and Monsieur Pontaven was raised 3lb after finishing runner-up at Chepstow and has only managed one win in 28 starts on the Turf. LOUKOUMI can't get much lower in the weights and has arguably been taking on better company. She finished ahead of a subsequent winner at Newcastle last time and could pop up at decent odds in this.
