PASSIONADA had Quality Art back in fourth when winning in a higher grade over course and distance last month and has only been raised a couple of pounds. A high draw isn't ideal but Ed McMahon's filly can come out on top again if Graham Lee can tuck her in before the first bend. Speightowns Kid, fourth here on Friday, is better drawn and has plenty of pace while there are possibilities about Hot Sugar. Prince Of Passion, Speedyfix and Above The Stars also have place claims but Sarah Berry disappointed at Lingfield last time.
