An interesting contest where SECRET QUEEN can make the most of her experience, while Bideeya, Love Action and Middle Club can all get involved. The selection improved from her first run to finish runner-up over course and distance last time, winding up ahead of Love Action on that occasion. The latter can certainly also come on plenty for the run and should close the gap here to some extent, but may not be up to winning just yet. Middle Club is presumably the preferred option of the Hannon-trained pair here for Ryan Moore, and she split Secret Queen and Love Action in that same event here last time. Good ground and this same 7f look ideal for now and again there should be little to choose between the trio. Bideeya was runner-up to Abandagold on her Chester debut and looks capable of improving on that, although the form has not worked out tremendously well and so she may have a bit to find. Chelsea Morning has the profile to make a good debut here for Barry Hills, while Calatrava Cape has a good pedigree and with the yard in form he could make his presence felt. Secret Queen gets the vote.
