A few of the three-year-olds have something to prove now including Jillnextdoor and Queen Aggie, who continues to slip down the weights having shown decent form last year. Rayaheen also kept good company last season but has plenty to find on official figures, though Hairy Rocket ended the last term on a high with victory at Lingfield. My Propeller has come up short in Listed races so far but Excelette has won in this grade at Haydock. Swan Song and Jwala have plenty of scope but a tentative vote goes to CALEDONIA LADY, beaten only a head in last year's renewal on her seasonal debut and a Group 3 winner at Sandown since.
