This looks a tougher maiden than usual for the track. Gay Marriage is a John Gosden newcomer and she's a half-sister to four winners while the High Chaparral filly Synaesthesia represents the Cecil camp and she out of a mare who won over 7f. Gosden also runs Penny Sixpence and she attracted good support on her Newmarket debut but ran very green. Aertex didn't act on the heavy ground at Salisbury and should do better while Alfaayza has looked in need of this longer trip in all three starts. Big Boned made a promising debut over this track and trip and found dropping back to 6f against her at Wolverhampton. SEQUESTER missed the break and was impeded when staying on at Leicester and with that under her belt can take this though Zanouska showed good pace in the same event.
