None of these inspire confidence but at least GRACEFUL ACT arrives on the back of a course win. She scored over 7f here at the start of the month and this longer trip is no problem. Outlaw Torn drops back in distance after a second over 1m2f in soft ground at Doncaster and Violent Velocity makes more appeal over today's trip and ground. Aseela is a winner at Yarmouth but that was back in 2012 and she missed the whole of last year while Lady Artiste won her maiden over course and distance though she was tailed off on her reappearance at Redcar.
