Both of Yahilwa's wins came on the Fibresand at Southwell and she's up another 6lb for scoring at that track last month. Liberty Jack will find this tougher than the maiden he won on the Turf at Lingfield while Queen Aggie isn't getting any closer despite tumbling 14lb down the weights this year. Burning Dawn has leading claims on his second at Leicester and Ready can make the frame, but a punt is taken that the lightly-raced ZIEKHANI can bounce back from a below par effort at Newmarket and land this.
