QUEENIE'S HOME was placed here in September and has won on the Polytrack since - she gets the vote dropping down in class for this. Coiste Bodhar only won a seller at Leicester earlier this month but this isn't any better and he can figure again, while Secret Applause went close to landing a plating race at Musselburgh on her penultimate start. Another Royal has slipped down the weights and Thornaby Princess and Bearskin may get involved on their handicap debuts. Lady Mai is another lightly-raced type capable of better with a recent comeback run under her belt.
