Irish raider Bogini has been placed in soft ground and was a five length winner at Bath a week ago. She can figure along with Laura's Bairn, who won at Catterick in similar underfoot conditions in April and the runner-up has since boosted the form with a victory. JOCASTA DAWN is less exposed than the aforementioned pair and opened her account in testing ground at Yarmouth last month. There looks more to come on her handicap bow given she had a couple of subsequent winners behind and Henry Candy's filly gets the nod. Especially Red has lost her way since scoring over C&D last year and the remainder are even harder to fancy.
