Drahem won a Redcar maiden on her debut last month and has more scope than any of these. She should go close to doubling her tally but POSH BOY has improved with experience and may just have the filly's measure if building again on his comeback fourth in a Warwick handicap. Sandy's Row didn't make the anticipated progress last year and again ran poorly on her reappearance but there are possibilities about Zhuba if he can transfer his recent all-weather form to Turf.
