Chester Deelyte has won or been placed on her last five starts at this track but may lack an edge on her first start since February. MEN DON'T CRY makes more appeal as he just failed to catch the winner over C&D last week when Keys Of Cyprus finished three lengths behind - Ed de Giles charge gets the nod. Lord Franklin was beaten less than a length over 6f here recently while Elegant Muse and Odd Ball have the past form to get involved if rediscovering their best.
