Scottish Boogie has been in fine form over longer trips on the Polytrack and recent Lingfield winner Blue Wave tries his luck on this surface under a penalty. Luv U Whatever continued his good progress when landing a hat-trick with a victory over 1m3f here last time. He has a further 6lb rise to contend with, but Lexington Bay can race off a lower mark than when winning over 1m6f here last year and is another to consider. Royal Alcor has been well beaten in better company of late, but DEWALA makes some appeal given she scored three times at this track early last year, is fit from hurdling and only 3lb higher than her latest win.
