Bright Applause won twice in the spring and probably still isn't too badly treated. Choisan is starting to knock on the door again but Badea has turned in a couple of shockers since hunting up MAYBEME at Beverley in June. Bavarian Nordic and Fossgate were behind that day and Neville Bycroft's mare has won again since on The Westwood and can defy a further 3lb rise in the weights. Honoured never figured when held up over 1m2f at Beverley last time but was second over this course and distance in June and has each-way claims.
