A recent winner at Redcar, Diletta Tommasa is not without a chance while Gift Of Silence finished runner-up in a seller last time but this isn't much better. Sequester is preferred to Cherry Princess with more scope for improvement, but a tentative vote goes to the least exposed in NELLIE THE ELEGANT. She isn't the first to run below par on the Fibresand at Southwell and won her racecourse debut at Wolverhampton before that. Tim Vaughan's filly gets another chance on her return from a lay-off.
