The drop in distance might suit Dutch Portrait but Sallabeh looked as though she'd be suited by further when a staying-on fourth at Goodwood last time. Pinter was much improved at Lingfield last time and Cam Hardie's claim will aid his cause but it may be worth opposing recent Tapeta winner Faraajh under a penalty. Buckleberry wasn't disgraced in a better race at Newbury last time, however, and makes more appeal than the Hannon pair Maftoon and L'Etacq. ROSALIE BONHEUR (NAP) did very well to score on her debut at Ripon considering she got hampered at the start. The runner-up won next time and then ran well off a mark of 71 in a nursery suggesting Clive Cox's filly is well treated here.
