Meet Me Halfway has won on Polytrack but never even reached a place in four starts on Turf. GIFT OF SILENCE gained her only success over this track on fast ground but has been placed over a mile so this trip won't be a problem and she can return to action with a victory. Beylerbey has been disappointing and well beaten on her two latest starts but Tiger's Home, who won over 6f at Bath, looks likely to be better suited by this longer trip this season. Bladewood Girl won at Kempton early last month but hasn't done as well from a 5lb higher mark at Southwell.
