Your Gifted has already run three times this month, scoring under today's young pilot over C&D two weeks ago. He's 9lb higher now, however, and couldn't handle this better grade at Ascot last time. Restless Bay is consistent but his stable is out of sorts, while Beauty Pageant has risen a further 4lb since going down narrowly at Doncaster. There are possibilities about Bedloe's Island and Southwell winner Sleepy Blue Ocean, but preference is for NOMOREBLONDES. Paul Midgley's mare has finished behind a couple of these recently but looked a reformed character when decimating a decent field at York last week and will take all the beating if in the same mood here.
