APPYJACK had been running well before scoring on ground with some give at Ffos Las where he overcame a wide draw. He'll get a good ride from Megan Carberry and can defy a penalty. Lil Sophella has only won once and that was over 7f on good ground so she has her stamina to prove here and though Lord Of The Storm has no problems with the trip he has only had one run in over two years and could just need this. Pink Lips was in consistent form over a mile last summer but has found stepping up to this distance from a higher mark against her though she did run well on the track in June.
