Muharrer beat a below-par San Cassiano at Newcastle last month but the latter has since hit top form and won over track and trip last time to complete a double. Ruth Carr's charge makes most appeal of that pair while Argaki and One Pekan found only one too good on their latests outings, though both step up in distance and class for this. Love Marmalade needs further and Beaumont's Party arrives in poor form so the vote goes to STRICTLY SILVER. The latter drops down a grade on the back of a third at Chester and won off a 9lb higher mark at Newmarket last season.
