Opt Out remains on a winning mark despite a 4lb rise for his recent success at Musselburgh but has done all his winning on a faster surface so far. Starlight Angel should figure again after a better effort over 6f at Warwick but OUR DIANE is preferred. She began the season on a 6lb higher mark and, after finishing third in soft going over track and trip three weeks ago, Richard Fahey's filly gets the vote. Dark Opal has the past form to figure but hasn't been at her best of late.
