No excuse was forthcoming for the poor effort of Phiz last time but she'd earlier finished second to The Lark in the Park Hill at Doncaster. Stablemate Tempest Fugit is also worthy of consideration on the back of a belated seasonal debut at Chester where Bite Of The Cherry finished second and Banoffee has every chance dropping back down to Listed level on her earlier fifth in the Lancashire Oaks. Souviens Toi also has claims on her best efforts this season behind the likes of Brown Panther and Wild Coco, but a speculative vote goes to LALANDIA. Peter Schiergen's filly went close in a Listed race at Munich last time and this longer trip is sure to suit. Kikonga has struggled in similar company so far while Phaenomena and Prospera step up from handicaps and the unexposed Speckled is thrown in at the deep end having only won a maiden at Kempton.
