No recent winning form to consider so it could pay to stick with the lightly-raced and steadily improving WAVEGUIDE. She finished third in soft going at Windsor last time and looks on a fair mark for her handicap debut. Quick Bite was a C&D winner last term and could prove a threat now back on a winning mark while Alluring Star also has claims on her latest second at Nottingham, although that was back in May. It was fast ground when Carrie's Magic went close at Ayr last time and Loukoumi has a tougher task after beating Foreign Rhythm when third in an amateurs' race three weeks ago.
