Peachez has been threatening a return to winning ways though she was still three lengths behind the winner at Bath last Saturday. Hesperides went close at Folkestone off today's mark having scored at Kempton before that and she can figure but SEVEN VEILS may just edge this. Sir Mark Prescott's filly found only one too good at Newcastle last week and will relish the return to genuinely fast ground. Drummond has a chance if staying the longer trip but Instrumentalist has something to prove over the distance on his previous poor efforts.
