This looks a good opportunity for SASHEEN. Jeremy Gask's filly won at Kempton last month before going close at Lingfield last time when third to the progressive Nahab. This looks an easier task and she can return to winning ways. Bold Cross, Pytheas and Aviso look no threat judged on this year's poor efforts and the returning Fire King could prove a bigger danger, though he usually saves his best for Brighton. Fifty Cents is lightly-raced for his age and looks on a fair mark but hasn't raced since last June.
