PLAYBILL certainly wasn't winning out of turn at Lingfield earlier this month. The handicapper has left her on the same mark and, as that victory should have boosted her confidence, she can follow up here despite the drop in trip. Recent Epsom scorer Sarangoo won here over 5f last year and has been successful over 7f this term. But she's been beaten twice over a mile already and may be found wanting again in the closing stages. Saucy Minx is preferred to Hill Of Dreams and the lightly-raced Al Jamal of the others but all three need to bounce back from poor efforts last time.
