La Bacouetteuse has won both starts since returning to action last month. He looks sure to be thereabouts once again and can confirm latest running with Bavarian Nordic, Ferney Boy and Dimashq. Miss Ferney drops back in trip under a penalty for winning at Redcar last week, but is not certain to confirm running with fourth-placed Light The City on the revised terms and preference is for LADY NORLELA. She scored at Catterick three weeks ago and, with a decent apprentice negating most of a 6lb penalty, Brian Rothwell's mare is taken to follow up.
