Viking Rose found one too good when sent off favourite at Yarmouth last time while Dundrum Dancer is dropped in distance after a recent third over a mile here. Represent is not out of this having scored over 7f at Folkestone last month and Malekat Jamal won't need to improve much on last year's form to come out best on her reappearance. LITTLE RAINBOW is also unexposed and after a couple of placed efforts in better races, Clive Cox looks to have found her a good opportunity to get off the mark.
