UMNEYATI is a bit unfortunate not to be on a four-timer as she was beaten only a short-head at Lingfield. She didn't appear to be suited by Brighton last time but still had something in reserve and can score again. Mr Dandy Man wasn't beaten that far in the latter race and has a real chance on the revised terms though he's more exposed than the winner. Classical Diva has competed in a couple of strong nurseries after her maiden success at Musselburgh though she was well beaten last time. Stellarta hasn't been beaten far in any of her races though she needs to find a finishing burst while the front-running Anfield won't be helped by being 3lb out of the handicap.
