Apace hasn't improved since winning at Haydock in May though she did have La Fortunata a length behind when fourth at Newmarket last month. The drop back to the minimum trip is a worry for Novellen Lad and Free For All, but Medici Time landed a double over today's distance in June and can figure. Living It Large bids for a hat-trick and has every chance, while Drift And Dream has claims on his belated reappearance. PISCEAN is another returning from a lay-off, but he's gone well fresh before and his best form on the Polytrack over the winter would be good enough to land this. He gets the nod racing off a 5lb lower mark back on turf.
