Johara failed to cope with an 8lb rise for winning over track and trip when finding one too good at Doncaster. Dancelot has been raised the same amount after scoring at Warwick last month so another chance goes to LADY HORATIA. The latter has been placed in higher grade sprints of late, including a close-up third to Athenian at Newmarket last time, so Bill Muir's filly gets the nod on that basis. Marjong is usually thereabouts at this level but Lingfield winners Nova Princesse, Dreams Of Reality and Majestic Song are all upped in class for this.
