Patience has run out with Queen Aggie, who had an easier chance at Chester last Saturday and blew it. Oasis Spirit bagged a maiden at Windsor last time and further progress is expected from her but another maiden winner in GHASABAH is just preferred. She had a subsequent winner back in third when scoring at Yarmouth and this longer trip will suit. Lovesome also opened her account last time when successful over track and trip and she makes more appeal than recent 6f winner Laughing Rock, who steps up a grade for this.
