Patrona Ciana is back on a winning mark but blew an easier opportunity in a claimer at Carlisle last time. Piddie's Power has also slipped back down the weights but hasn't won since 2012 while Real Tigress remains 9lb higher than her win at Beverley in May. Thankyou Very Much has failed to cope with a 6lb rise for winning at Ripon and No Poppy couldn't catch the front-running MAIDEN APPROACH at Redcar last time. The latter has scope for further progress and can make another bold bid from the front in this.
