It's hard to make a strong case for any of these but MADAM LILIBET arrives in decent form having won at Newcastle last month. She gets the nod despite stepping up in class. Mr Crystal was still beaten 11 lengths when third over a slightly shorter trip here last month while Wayward Glance and Cowslip failed to get involved in soft ground at Newcastle last week, although the latter had won on a fast surface at Ripon before that. Neighbourhood may figure off a lower mark back on Turf and Rockawango won on the Flat when trained in France.
