STAR LILY has a penalty to carry for her quite impressive victory at Wetherby where she was always travelling nicely. Providing she handles this testing ground she can go in again. Buckboru was a 100/1 chance when a very good third to Rhythm Star in heavy ground at Taunton and looks an obvious threat if the selection fails to handle the conditions. Georgian Firebird showed little on her opening run at Wetherby but can be expected to improve while the betting may tell us more about the prospects of the remainder.
