PENNY DROPS failed to land the odds when finding one too good at Doncaster last time. Rated 87, she gets a chance to make amends. Solar Moon was well beaten at Newmarket on her debut and Miss Temper never threatened the winner when runner-up at Kempton last time. Backstage Gossip is expected to improve from her fourth at Warwick and is preferred to stablemate and newcomer Chufft. Majestic Song looks best of the remainder on her return.
