A Legacy Of Love is usually thereabouts but has been struggling to get her head in front. Shasta Daisy is still improving, however, judged on her second at Kempton in April and should be winning soon while Nimble Kimble is a course and distance winner and will appreciate a return to the surface after a couple of runs on Turf. VENUS GRACE was doing her best work at the finish on her handicap debut at Newbury so this sharper track is a worry. But she looks well treated here so still gets the vote ahead of Yarmouth second Clever Miss and the returning Jacquotte Delahaye.
