SUPREME QUEST has the best pieces of form on offer having finished second at both Warwick and Salisbury. She's shown plenty of early pace over 6f recently so this return to the minimum trip should suit although her ability to handle the ground has to be taken on trust. It was fast going when Miss Noble finished runner-up at Folkestone last time but Angelito's debut third at Windsor looks stronger form while Black Douglas improved to finish sixth at Doncaster last time. The remainder are hard to fancy and newcomer Euroquip Rose makes little appeal on breeding.
