STONEY QUINE has run here three times and scored twice, both over 7f. She's looked in need of this trip on her last couple of starts and will be difficult to beat. Lady Knight makes her handicap debut after three maiden runs on Polytrack where she's shown some potential but Maupiti Express looks no better than a plater having finished runner-up in a claiming race here yesterday. Starlight Princess gained a surprise victory over a big field at Kempton but couldn't handle a 4lb rise at Wolverhampton a couple of weeks later when she had My My My Diliza just behind. Bonnie Fairy has shown nothing so far.
