WHAT ABOUT NOW had to be dropped into a seller to get off the mark over C&D last time but won by six lengths and this probably isn't much better. Despite a 9lb higher mark, it would be no surprise if John Hills' filly followed up. Rather Cool scored at Newbury last month but was well beaten in lesser company at Windsor next time, while neither Joyful Sound nor Newby Lodge can be described as progressive. Rose Of Sarratt makes her handicap debut but still has something to prove, though probably has more scope than Dolly Colman.
