ROWLESTONE LASS looked to have the race sewn up at Chepstow last time but was caught on the line. She gets a chance to make amends over this longer trip. Wor Lass was beaten only a nose here a week ago with Grand Diamond back in fifth and the former should make another bold bid. Something went amiss with Latin Rebel at Hamilton last time but Harrison's Cave finished runner-up in an amateur's race on his latest start and may figure.
