This looks a good opportunity for BIRDLOVER to get off the mark. She was beaten only a head in a conditions race at Ascot earlier this month and will find this much easier. Jodies Jem finished closer in heavy ground at Yarmouth last time, though Swift Bounty may improve past him after a debut fifth at Haydock. Rabdaan is the first foal of a Listed winner and is preferred to Dream About You and Smart Alice of the newcomers.
