Rayoumti has been beaten off today's mark on a couple of occasions since scoring over track and trip in June. Swiss Kiss opened her account on the Polytrack having slipped down the weights and will find life tougher raised 5lb. Cornish Path keeps threatening to win without actually doing so, but Newmarket winner Baynunah might be worth another chance as she clearly didn't stay 1m2f last time. LADY SYLVIA posted one of her better efforts when just behind Who's That Chick at Sandown last month and given the latter has gone in again since, Joseph Tuite's mare gets the vote.
