Copper Cavalier hasn't been seen since winning an equally modest affair on the Polytrack in January off a 4lb lower mark so LIBRA ROMANA looks the obvious starting point. Sir Mark Prescott's filly ran her best race so far when second over track and trip last week and Rosie Jessop is likely to try and make all tonight on this hard-puller. Dark Phantom was third at Salisbury on his penultimate start but reverted to type next time at Brighton and none of the others have shown much lately.
