Carina Palace has found one too good at Kempton on her last three outings and it could be a similar story here. Elusive Gold and Whatever You Do should have come on for their respective seasonal debuts and could figure while New Rich can be given a chance on his third at Pontefract in August. IRISH DREAM has had three starts this year with her best effort coming over track and trip in January. She gets the tentative vote after a recent outing over the minimum trip at Kempton.
