Chloe's Image finished ahead of Hazza The Jazza and Duchess Of Dreams when fifth at Kelso 10 days ago but that form doesn't look good enough for this. Nellie Forbush was still beaten 33 lengths when third at Bangor while Tinctoria was pulled up at Perth after finishing second on debut at Sedgefield. Ravens Nest weakened quickly when fourth at Huntingdon so we'll concentrate on the newcomers with MIXED MESSAGE preferred to Eton Rambler. Brian Ellison's filly won over 6f and 1m on the Flat and may have more speed than George Baker's gelding, who may also prefer more ease in the ground. It would be no surprise should Attansky prove the pick of Tim Easterby's pair.
