SANDRA'S DIAMOND made all over 6f to land the odds at Ayr last time. Today's drop back in trip should be no problem for Keith Dalgleish's filly and she can follow-up. Captain Joe looks the only real threat as he's likely to have improved from his debut over the minimum trip at York and makes more appeal than Spinner Lane, Chennai Wind and the thoroughly exposed Lady Dancer. Diamondsinthesky looks nothing special on breeding and may be best watched on her introduction.
