MISS ELLA JADE has shown a liking for a stiff track the last twice with improved Pontefract efforts so should be well suited by this testing venue. She produced a steady late challenge to deliver the goods last time and looks an improving sort who should also relish this step-up in trip. Bada Bing also looks to be an improver, having displayed better form here last time over a mile. She should go well but the form does not look quite as strong as that of the selection. Gangsterbanksters was pulled out of an intended Windsor engagement on Monday evening and comes here instead with fair claims and a first-time visor whilst Scarlet Prince showed more last time and is not ruled out.
