Seven Veils won a minor handicap at Yarmouth over 1m3f very easily but has been beaten at very short odds on both subsequent starts over much longer trips. He's now 10lb higher than for his victory but this should prove a more suitable distance. Mount Abora scored over this trip at Wolverhampton in January but reverted to 1m1f to win again at Newbury last time. Charlotte Jenner rides her again and her claim is a big plus so Laura Mongan's mare has to go on the short-list. Jane Lachatte has won twice - both over 1m2f on this track on ground with plenty of give. She didn't appear to stay this trip at Goodwood on Friday but she obviously loves this unique track and her astute trainer wouldn't be running her without good reason. TWELVE STRINGS won over a mile on his final juvenile start and on his reappearance at Haydock. He's been a bit disappointing since that latest success but this step up in trip may bring about enough improvement to get back on the winning trail. Enery looks well handicapped on Turf and may provide the main threat.
