Silvanus has done all his winning on fast going so far although there was some cut in the ground when he finished second at Musselburgh last month. Love You Louis has been threatening to get his head back in front without actually doing so and the speculative vote goes to MATA HARI BLUE. She scored in soft ground at Ripon in April and today's similar surface could see her return to winning ways off a 2lb higher mark. Mother Jones is not badly treated if back to her best and Irish Boy is another with claims on last year's best form.
