Headgear is applied to Au Renoir after her poor debut effort at Wolverhampton and I Am Who I Am has shown little in either start so far. Blue Oyster has gone backwards since a fourth at Kempton and Indira hasn't improved as expected having finished runner-up on her debut. That leaves Sir Mark Prescott's ROHESIA, who finished a promising third here on last week's introduction and can come out best in this modest company stepping up a furlong.
