Ivan Vasilevich broke his duck on turf at Yarmouth last month and didn't run badly off his new mark when fourth at Sandown last Friday. But Jane Chapple-Hyam's charge is fully exposed in comparison to ALBARAKA. Sir Mark Prescott's team doesn't usually come to hand until a little later in the summer so it's significant he's decided to let his filly take her chance under top weight here. She was most impressive when winning her maiden at Wolverhampton in February and this extra furlong will be in her favour. Bussa carries a penalty for a narrow win at Salisbury but still makes more appeal than maiden See The Smile.
