Willow Beck was entered at Newmarket yesterday but would have obviously claims if diverted here instead. Beacon Lady has been in terrific form at her beloved Brighton so goes well on an undulating track but she's shot up the weights while Astra Hall has gone up 8lb for winning at Ffos Las. BANTAM found a nice turn of foot to head Java Rose close home at Salisbury and her stable is going well. She's only a couple of pounds worse off with the runner-up and can confirm the form and take this under Dettori. Kempton maiden winner Astonishing has scope but doesn't look particularly well treated so Newmarket scorer Miss Dashwood may be a bigger danger.
