Buxom went close on a couple of occasions last autumn but rather lost her way after. Tara Muck didn't show much at Ffos Las last month and will struggle to reverse that form with Tenmoku but The Pirate's Queen is interesting having justified short odds in a Taunton bumper in May. She finished six lengths behind CENTASIA in a Listed race at Aintree earlier, however, and David Pipe's mare looks the one to be on here with fitness unlikely to be an issue. August Hill also has a bit of scope.
