Lady Gibraltar is in cracking form and won over C and D last month, albeit off an 11lb lower mark. She should be thereabouts again while fellow three-year-old Waseem Faris was beaten less than a length when third at York last time. Stone Of Folca won over track and trip earlier this season and can't be ignored as he's faced some stiff tasks since while Fair Value is another recent C and D winner and he was far from disgraced over 6f at Goodwood last time. CADEAUX PEARL can be a little quirky but won over C and D on soft ground in April under Fallon and recent rain is very much in his favour. It could be his turn again today.
