A very good turnout for a moderate prize and it's difficult to see one without a chance. Sedenoo defied a penalty for his Nottingham success with a workmanlike victory at Leicester but he'll need to improve again with a 5lb rise to contend with. Monakova has a similar profile and she's another who will need to find more after victories at a lower level. Richard Fahey runs Yarmouth maiden winner Khelman, and FLIGHTY CLARETS, who came with a strong burst to score at Ayr and has been let in lightly with a 3lb rise. Neil Farley can claim the extra back so she's taken to go in again though Shore Step has proved herself on soft ground and wasn't beaten far in a better race at Goodwood last time.
