Impertinent may struggle again and Compton Rainbow is pretty exposed but the remainder can all be given a chance. BIG MOZA nearly caused an upset when beaten less than a length at 100/1 at Lingfield last month and John Best's filly gets the chance to prove that run was no fluke. Easy Life finished three lengths behind the winner on her latest start over today's trip while both Liliana and Ruff Luck found one too good over 7f on their latest starts and make more appeal than Lucilla over today's longer distance.
