The lightly-raced Sealed With A Kiss was due to run at Salisbury yesterday but would have claims if rerouted here. Stamina could be an issue for Lady Bayside while Loch Ma Naire is one-paced and has been racing over further in the main. Pandorica looks to be in the handicapper's grip and Koliakhova only won a claimer at Windsor last month and will find this opposition an entirely different proposition. AFFAIRE DE COEUR made little impression on her handicap debut at Salisbury but drops down a couple of grades for this and is also 2lb lower - she could improve past this bunch.
