This has been a good race for three-year-olds in the past so a big run is expected from Lollina Paulina, who won a fillies' handicap here last month. The placed pair have been beaten subsequently but there should be more to come from Kevin Ryan's filly. The lightly-raced Elbe has plenty of potential and a long absence is rarely a problem for one from the Cecil yard while Ultrasonic and CHARLOTTE ROSINA are others from the younger brigade with chances and it's the latter, who found 7f and Listed company too much for her at Warwick after winning over the C&D, who gets the vote. Coolminx will love the going and is back on the same mark as when landing the Bronze Cup at Ayr in September and though Choral's two victories have been on Polytrack she was just touched off over 7f on soft ground at Leicester last month.
