Bousatet was somewhat below par last time albeit in a decent handicap at Redcar but was previously progressive and landed two successes last autumn under the talented pilot who takes the ride again. However, he has to concede a stone to CHANTREA who has been involved in three close Lingfield finishes this year, each time giving the impression that she is not totally straightforward. There definitely seems more to come from the Dansili filly and she's taken to oblige here in the hope that a first-time visor will aid her concentration levels. Fellow three-year-old Ixelles Diamond is interesting if race-fit for this reappearance whilst Broughtons Charm has yet to win on turf but Serenity Spa cannot be discounted.
