Both Picansort and Estonia have claims on their Polytrack form but neither have won on this surface and Wooden King will need to improve on last month's seventh over C&D. The Strig has been placed at Brighton recently and can make the frame again but it was soft ground when Gracie's Games won at Windsor last month. REBECCA ROMERO scored twice on a fast surface last season and after a recent pipe-opener at Kempton, Denis Coakley's sprinter looks up to scoring off her current mark dropped in class today.
