DARTIX won an apprentice race at Ayr on Monday so carries no penalty and with Connor Beasley again in the plate and claiming 5lb a quick double looks on the cards. See Clearly won here from just 1lb lower last August and though disappointing last time should still do better than Blue Shoes, who goes best with some give. Charlemagne Diva has won twice in her career, both on this track, so she's respected along with Lady Royale, who is finally dropping to a mark she is capable of winning from.
