Roedean nearly got her head in front at Brighton last week but could only manage fourth in a couple of earlier attempts over C&D and AFNOON makes more appeal. John Dunlop's filly is steadily improving with her latest third over C&D her best effort yet. She can land this with normal progress and gets the nod ahead of Engrossing. The latter has been threatening to lose his maiden tag with a couple of placed runs over 7f and makes more appeal on fast ground than recent Sandown fourth Masters Blazing. Amoralist and handicap debutant Thereabouts could prove best of the remainder.
