Neston Grace won at Towcester last month but faces a tough task under a penalty giving weight to AMAZING D'AZY. The latter also has 7lb taken off her back by Ed Cookson who was on board when she went close on good ground at Ludlow recently - today's Polytrack surface should be no problem. Etania posted a better effort on the Turf at Southwell in June and makes more appeal than Miss Overbury while Pepelina, a half-sister to the prolific Pepe Simo, could go well on her debut. Dahteste is also related to winners and is worth noting with the champion jockey on board for her first start.
