Maid A Million is a rare runner here for Newmarket trainer David Elsworth and she's been knocking on the door, finishing second at Goodwood and Yarmouth already this month. Normally, that form would be good enough to win a race like this but this maiden has attracted some decent fillies. Rangooned is back over 6f after seconds over 5f at Catterick and Nottingham but we prefer MEDICI DANCER. Tim Easterby has two in this and his other entry, Lilac Lace, is improving with experience but David Allan's mount was only beaten a head by Yorkshireman at Pontefract last week and can go one better here.
