Secret Advice is up another 4lb for winning over 5f here last month but continues to improve and can't be ignored in this. Hab Reeh finished a length ahead of Sinai when runner-up at Thirsk last week but it would be no surprise if the latter reverses running here on only her third start of the year. Insolenceofoffice recorded a rare win when scoring at Southwell last month but has been well beaten since so preference is for AYASHA. She dead-heated for first in much better company at Pontefract on her latest start and an apprentice negates most of a 6lb penalty today.
