Boudoir scored on the Polytrack here in May and looks high enough in the weights now though a 7lb claimer should help her cause. It was soft ground when Tenbridge scored over C&D earlier this month so connections will be hoping the rain arrives but Alkadi doesn't look particularly well handicapped on the evidence of her recent efforts. MISS CAP ESTEL makes her belated reappearance and she won't have to find much improvement on last year's efforts to get involved on her handicap debut. Andrew Balding's filly gets the speculative vote with Little Rainbow perhaps proving best of the rest.
