This is anybody's race but NO POPPY looks sure to make a bold bid. Tim Easterby's filly handled the step up in class and heavy ground to score at York last time and Frankie's presence in the saddle boosts confidence further. Raasekha should do better back on soft ground though the drop back to a mile is not certain to suit Hippy Hippy Shake. Subtle Knife steps up in trip having gone close at Ascot recently but this is a big step up in class for Leicester winner Hurricane Lady. The ground may not be ideal for Fulney and Raheeba will find this tougher than the Polytrack races she's been winning. Shena's Dream has shown progressive form on faster going but, along with Sputnik Sweetheart, has yet to encounter testing ground.
