A maiden winner at Windsor, Josefa Goya wasn't helped by a wide draw when fourth at Beverley last time. But she still has plenty to find with third-placed FRIENDSHIP IS LOVE and the latter is fancied to get her head in front again in this. Tom Sawyer was still well beaten despite finishing second at Hamilton but is dropping down a grade today along with Mossgo, who has claims on his earlier placed effort at Ffos Las. Charming made the frame at Yarmouth last month but Proper Charlie's best form has come on the Polytrack so far.
