MERRY JAUNT's latest second over a longer trip at Chester is misleading as she finished a street behind the winner Everlong. However, John Gosden's filly had done much better when runner-up over today's trip beforehand and she gets the nod on her handicap debut. Fairyinthewind is dropped in class and makes more appeal than Grey Seal and Berwin but Windsor maiden winner My Body Is A Cage could prove a threat. Raheeba has a penalty for her recent C&D victory but Amelia May can be given a shout on last month's close-up second at Newmarket.
