Bailadeira reverted to her more usual mediocre form last time having popped up at a big price here before that. Chateau Lola has also struggled since scoring over track and trip in February but Loyal Royal and Slatey Hen are perfectly capable of winning at this level if in the mood and Sally's Swansong can make the frame off her current mark. MY TIME will need to improve on last year's form in maiden company on his return but has plenty of scope. With Robert Tart's allowance in his favour, he gets the tentative vote up against thoroughly exposed opposition.
