A competitive handicap but GUIDED MISSILE should find this an easier engagement than when a rather disappointing beaten favourite at Newmarket last time. Previously she scored with a degree of authority at Chepstow and can return to winning brackets if back to that level. Millyluvstobouggie just held on to justify favouritism at Leicester, should remain competitive off a 5lb higher mark and seemed suited by the drop back to a sixth furlong last time. Four of Polar Annie's five wins have come at a furlong further than this trip but Malcolm Saunders is a dab hand with his older sprinters, although his inmate does seem to have been rather harshly treated for her latest success. Our Piccadilly and Admirable Spirit are others to note.
