HAMEILDAEME makes most appeal here, but also worthy of note are My Sweet Georgia and Auld Arty. The selection is towards the bottom of the weights, which could prove crucial in this, and she has run on softish ground in the past. She's making her handicap debut following three second-placed finishes at this level. For some of these it'll be a first time on such soft going and that would be the worry for My Sweet Georgia. An 80,000 guineas purchase, she was runner-up in her last two outings, in which she's been stepped down in class. This seems to be her level but being among the top weights could be a problem. Auld Arty has run on soft ground and was runner-up to a short-priced favourite at Windsor last time out in a higher class, but the high draw would be a negative.
