Hornboy beat little when easily landing a maiden on the Turf at Lingfield last time. LIONHEART also returned a cosy winner in a handicap at Brighton last time and as that looks superior form, Luca Cumani's colt gets the nod to follow-up. Summer Dream is not the most consistent but has claims on her latest second at Lingfield while Secret Beau and Future Reference have both made the frame in similar company of late. Repitition didn't improve for the step back down to 6f last time but was beaten only a length over today's trip before that.
