A winner at Bath last month, Assoluta never figured off today's higher mark last time. King Calypso has been thereabouts in subsequent races after beating Ede's The Business at Lingfield earlier but another chance goes to DARK TSARINA. She was beaten less than a length when third over 1m4f at Lingfield last time and a similar effort should see her go very close. Ohio is bred to be better over middle-distances and is one to keep an eye stepping up in trip.
