AS I AM is clear at the weights and is the one to beat. She scored in this grade at Newbury before running Carole's Spirit close in Listed company at Haydock and can return to winning ways. Down Ace and Blue Buttons are progressing well but will both need more to match the selection, while Roja Dove can also figure on the best of her earlier form in Ireland. Dolores Delightful is the least exposed with only a couple of outings in France to her name but Richard Johnson's presence takes the eye and she could go well.
