Stellar Express carries a penalty for her recent win over 1m2f at Chester and connections will be hoping for a better effort than when fourth over track and trip on her reappearance. Shavansky is treading water at the minute but drops down in class for this as does AJMANY. Luca Cumani's charge can be forgiven his latest effort behind subsequent Ascot winner Remote and return to winning ways in this lesser company. Light Rose could prove best of the remainder.
