No surprise to see GALLIPOT raised 9lb for her six length victory over C&D a fortnight ago. She wasn't asked a serious question on that occasion and can go in again here. Recent Lingfield winner, Hayaku, and Epsom runner-up Kathleen Frances have claims but a couple of less exposed types look bigger threats. Handicap debutant Bedazzled and Westwiththenight were both placed on their latest starts and should get involved though Reset City looks to be treading water off her current mark. Livia's Dream scored at Windsor in June and can be forgiven her latest below par effort as the soft ground looked against her.
