Reminisce was hugely disappointing when favourite at Nottingham after a fair start at Kempton. That can't have been his true running but he's dropped in trip now and we're going to take him on here with newcomer MARIA LOMBARDI. Jeremy Noseda's filly is by Medicean out of a Grade 1 winner in the States and wouldn't have to be anything special to make a winning debut. St Elmo's Fire is closely related to the useful Firebeam but Cape of Hope, who showed promise last year, looks his stable's first choice. Go Far ran poorly last time and is now blinkered - he's had plenty of chances.
