Robbian has the only recent winning form with a victory in heavy ground at Beverley last month. But he's been beaten on faster surfaces either side of that and ARTEMIS is preferred. He's slipped 9lb down the weights this year and another bold bid is expected after a close-up second at Lingfield earlier in the week. Mimi Luke is another sliding down the handicap and she may be thereabouts along with fellow maiden Vodka Chaser.
