All Fur Coat is likely to be popular as Jo Hughes' filly won the Lily Agnes Stakes at May on soft going, but the handicapper has taken few chances with her. Brian Meehan's runners at Chester are always to be noted and he's one from one with his juveniles at the Roodeye this season so SECRET SIGN gets the nod as he is related to a number of soft ground winners on the dam side of his pedigree. Chasing Dreams won a poor maiden at Catterick in taking fashion before disappointing on a much faster surface at Musselburgh but Layla's Oasis could be interesting on her handicap debut. Kevin Ryan's filly has not been short of speed over six furlongs and, as she's out of a Selkirk mare, there's a realistic chance that she'll cope with the testing going. Sharaarah wasn't beaten far at Ripon and shouldn't be too far away here either.
