Wild Sauce gained her only success on Turf at Newcastle a year ago and is back on the same mark. She'll make a bold bid but BLUE SHOES has been given a chance by the handicapper and should take it. Tim Easterby's filly was also in good form at this time last year and is now 5lb lower than when successful at Carlisle. Majestic Manannan scored at Yarmouth in June but for some unknown reason is 11lb higher so Perfect Words may be more of a threat, despite the fact he's still a maiden, as he's run his best races over this course and distance.
