Knight's Parade continued his frustrating run of placed efforts when runner-up at Goodwood last Saturday. Patience has ran out with him and MISS TIGER LILY is given a chance. She was beaten only a head on her handicap debut over track and trip and has plenty of scope for further progress. Classy Trick looks to be treading water off his current mark but the handicapper refuses to relent and Conversing has failed to show any improvement on the all-weather so far this year. Niknad has Sweet Alabama back in fifth when scoring over a shorter at Wolverhampton and could figure.
