The Nifty Fox may not be the force of old and faster ground is a worry for penalised Hamilton winner New Lease Of Life here but it will suit Saxonette. After a string of consistent efforts, she got back to winning ways here last month and there's a chance she can reverse Ayr running in July with Tadalavil on this quicker surface, despite worse terms. Only a neck separated IRISH GIRLS SPIRIT and Pavers Star behind Pastureyes at Catterick nine days ago. Both appear well drawn here so there shouldn't be much between the pair again but we'll take Paul Midgley's mare to come out on top and land this.
