PAVERS STAR was beaten a length in similar company over C&D last week. He had the re-opposing Ballarina well behind and off the same mark today should be up to landing this. Burnt Cream has had just a couple of starts this season and showed a bit more at Kempton last time while Rightcar is capable of popping up at this level on his day. Cri Na Mara won her maiden here last year but hasn't looked like winning since and Nafa has shown his best at Southwell so far.
