A few of these returned to action in a Listed sprint at Nottingham last month. LADIES ARE FOREVER was beaten a length in third but given she's a proven winner at this level, landing a Group 3 at York last season, Geoff Oldroyd's filly earns the vote. Sioux Rising finished just ahead of the selection at Nottingham and should be thereabouts again while fifth-placed Artistic Jewel will appreciate today's faster ground and can also get involved. Introbil and My Propeller have the ability but lack consistency while handicap winners Hammat and Mince step up in class and Intense Pink is thrown in at the deep-end having won a Pontefract maiden in April.
