Only four line up in this but it's a tricky puzzle to solve. DALI'S LOVER has her sights lowered and can be forgiven her run over 1m6f at Sandown last month. She makes more appeal than Knight's Parade, who was proving frustrating prior to winning at Chepstow and looks vulnerable off a 5lb higher mark, and the maiden Hamla. The latter may well improve a little for the switch to Turf, however, and can finish ahead of recent course winner Just A Pound who has been found wanting over this sort of trip in the past.
