Anjomarba is on a long losing run but was only beaten half-a-length at Wolverhampton last month, though is 2lb higher here. Yarmouth winner Big Wave is unexposed and should go well for Richard Hughes if handling the surface, while Perfect Ch'I was second over 7f at Kempton last time but tackles this shorter distance for the first time since 2010. Bobby's Doll, on the other hand, has shown her best form over 5f so we'll give another chance to LADY MANGO. After getting off the mark over C&D in March, she caught the eye again over an extra furlong at Kempton and appears to be improving.
