LITHOGRAPH has shown steady progression in three runs, highlighted by a solid second to Jacob McCandles on Fibresand in March, a run that clearly indicated there's more to come. Obviously, it's best to tread fairly carefully on this first run on the grass but she certainly looks the most progressive operator on show and is well worth the risk. Fine Altomis shaped with considerable promise on his handicap bow at Nottingham last time and is fully deserving of topweight here. He rates an obvious threat to the Johnston filly, looking sure to benefit and improve from that Midlands run. No Plan B has taken time to find her feet but her latest effort when third at Wolverhampton showed that she's going the right way and she should be competitive at this rather modest level.
