This looks a dire contest and KIDMEFOREVER has to go on the short-list. She was second in this grade at Ripon in May and has also run well in better races at Warwick and Newbury. Diminutive hinted at some ability on the all-weather in the spring but has disappointed the last twice and Ciaras Cookie isn't improving. Astrea was third in a Beverley claimer last time and should be suited by the extra furlong so looks the pick of the remainder.
