Just five entered here but all bar Ding Ding, who could only finish fifth in a nursery at Carlisle on Tuesday, are winners last time out. Tender Emotion was sent to Kempton to lose her maiden tag which she did over 7f while suggesting this longer trip would suit. Mutatis Mutandis scrambled home against Rawoof at Doncaster and will improve again, though the runner-up was beaten at Beverley on Tuesday. Shirocco Passion looked ideally suited to soft ground when storming away with a Redcar nursery so connections will be hoping for some rain but FLORA MEDICI has won three of her last four on quick going and was so impressive at Beverley last time that she can continue her sequence.
