MADAM MAYEM has the highest handicap mark in the field after three runs on turf. Her best effort came over the stiff 5f at Beverley last July and she should have no problem with today's extra furlong. Tom Dascombe's filly gets the vote in this company. Libertino produced a better effort when dropped back to 5f last time and can make the frame but Gower Sophia was well beaten at Kempton on Tuesday and is hard to fancy. Gorgeous Goblin could prove best of the remainder.
