College Doll is only a pound higher than when winning over this trip on the Fibresand in April and may well be the pick of local trainer Christine Dunnett's trio ahead of Give Us A Belle and Ellingham. Bubbly Bailey has yet to win on Turf but is getting closer and only found one too good on fast ground at Brighton last time. Addictive Nature is still unexposed but so is LADY MAI and, having been cut a little slack by the handicapper, Richard Fahey's filly can finally get off the mark today. Rostrum Farewell ran his best race so far at Beverley last time and rates a danger.
