Maltease Ah has gone close on Turf the last twice but has yet to show the same level of form on the Polytrack while C&D winner Flaxen Lake is back on a winning mark but out of sorts at present. AVONLINI scored over track and trip in April and, though 3lb higher on her first start since May, a chance is taken she's ready for action. Cheery Cat won a Bath recently but has three lengths to find with the selection on their running here early this year and the remainder are hard to fancy.
