Isola Verde wasn't beaten far on her belated reappearance over track and trip and should be thereabouts again but Dartrix needs further help from the handicapper while both Ambitious Icarus and Putin have poor strike rates. Majestic Manannan is back on a decent mark, however, though has done most of his racing over 5f. SARAH BERRY is a tentative choice but this is her grade nowadays and both previous victories have come at the track. Ryan Clark's claim should aid her cause today.
