A very competitive fillies' handicap in which most have some sort of chance. Frankie rides Lingfield winner Tiger Cub for new German-born trainer Ilka Gansera-Leveque, who boasts a perfect record with her runners so far, while four others bring winning form into the race. Links Drive Lady is chasing a hat-trick while Palmette has scope for further improvement and Miss Polly Plum made all over 5f here last month. But the most impressive last time was Al Janadeirya, who scored by nine lengths in a Warwick maiden. BYTON beat the latter and Palmette at Folkestone in June, however, and had Represent and Big Wave behind despite looking all at sea on Brighton's twists and turns last time. With Amy Scott taking off 5lb, Henry Candy's filly could be worth another chance on this more conventional track. Millibar and Isola Verde can't be ignored but course specialist Oh So Spicy hasn't been at her best so far this summer.
