Wordismybond won over a mile at Lingfield and over an extra furlong at Newbury but is effective over this shorter trip, though may not have been helped by a high draw in this. Aqua Ardens only won a claimer at Epsom but Snow Bay would have claims on his best form and Lunette was well backed at Newmarket last month, though ultimately well beaten. HALF WAY looks the most progressive of the three-year-olds on her four-length victory at Lingfield. He's been put up 5lb for that but gets on well with Amy Scott and can score again.
