A recent fourth at Epsom suggests Baby Strange will be winning again soon. Trojan Rocket won four times last year and made a successful reappearance at Windsor so has to go on the short-list, though fifth My Kingdom enjoys a big turnaround in the weights and has been placed since at Lingfield. Gabbiano won at Kempton and Ascot before finishing behind Baby Strange at Epsom but NARDIN has her weight-for-age allowance to fall back on. Midnight Flower can give a boost to her course and distance second earlier on the card and Ed Dunlop's filly get the nod with Albaqaa better over further.
