Brijomi Queen tackled Listed company at Cheltenham last week while Ayr third Golden Sparkle also has her sights lowered and won this 12 months ago, though is still 7lb higher. IN BY MIDNIGHT is proving very consistent and didn't do a lot wrong when second at Stratford last time having been lit up when badly hampered by a faller in the early stages. She makes more appeal than stablemate Definitely Better and the returning Rev Up Ruby. A Shade Of Bay has been out of sorts lately.
