The Cheshire Oaks winner Banoffee ran well stepped up to 1m5f in a Listed fillies' race at Lingfield last time. She should be bang there at the finish on today's terms and is expected to reverse running with Livia's Dream. FATTSOTA is a tough customer and, after finding the higher-rated Nabucco too good in Listed company at Newmarket earlier this month, David O'Meara's charge is fancied to come out best in this. German raider Jeanie Johnston is hard to assess though she's a winner on the all-weather in France and Dick Doughtywylie looks best of the remainder on his latest effort at Lingfield behind Prince Alzain.
