Katy's Secret scored at Yarmouth last time but is 5lb higher today and stepping up in class. In contrast, CAELIS is dropping back down a couple of grades having finished fourth in a decent handicap at York on her latest start. She won twice on turf over today's trip during the summer and a return to winning ways looks on the cards. Gap Princess and Cloud's End have the past form to figure but, after notching up five consecutive wins earlier this year, Roodee Queen now looks in the handicapper's grip. Ishiadancer has slipped down to a winning mark and looks best of the rest.
