Kevin Stott takes 7lb off Misplaced Fortune, who likes it here. Nigel Tinkler's mare may prove the best of the older runners in this, ahead of Love Island, but has to give a lot weight to younger and more progressive rivals. Shafaani started off the campaign in Listed company and could go well at big odds but it looks like Floating Along is in the handicapper's grip judged on her latest third at Salisbury. Strictly Silca is 6lb better off than when beaten three lengths behind JUBILANT QUEEN at Windsor last month but Clive Cox's filly has the better draw here and should confirm the form. She looks the one to beat, though Jubilante will appreciate the drop back to 6f and Penny Garcia is starting to come down the weights again and can't be ignored.
