Maggie Pink won here in November and was having her first start for two months when a close fifth behind Prince Of Passion a couple of weeks ago. Brown Volcano and Piccolo Express finished just in front that day and the former, who finished best of all, can come out on top of the trio again. Jamie Osborne tries Jericho, who won a maiden here a year ago, in first-time blinkers after a poor reappearance and they could have the desired effect while dual Turf winner Purley Queen should be losing her all-weather maiden tag soon. NANT SAESON has gained both career victories over this course and distance and, with just a 3lb rise for last month's success, looks set for win number three.
