Blockade won a minor handicap at Catterick very easily and has improvement in her but LILBOURNE LASS has contested better class races and can return to winning ways. Richard Hannon's filly couldn't handle Wind Fire at Newbury but she's very speedy and is more likely to be suited by this track. Rough Courte is still a maiden but she's rarely been beaten far and deserves to get her head in front at some stage. Fire Blaze hasn't been disgraced in two Group 2 events since her opening maiden success and, with this representing a drop in class, she looks a real threat.
