BARCODE won well last time and she looks a good bet to score again; Chicken Momo and Artesium look her chief rivals. The selection beat Turn To Dreams at Bath when she was good value for her winning margin. This slight step-up in trip should suit her and although she is not ideally drawn, she looks the percentage call. Chicken Momo chased home Compton Ford at Musselburgh in a seller last time and he is clearly no stable star. He is upped slightly in trip tonight which might help, but he does have a bit to prove. Artesium was quickly beaten last time out but that was his first run for a new yard and they may be able to find some improvement. Handful Of Magic has a good draw and Tom Dascombe's filly was not disgraced in a better race than this at Goodwood last time. An open event, and Barcode is the percentage call.
