Red Dakota found one too good in a seller when stepped up to 7f here last time. She should be in the mix once again but MY LITTLE FRIEND is just preferred. The latter also finished runner-up in plating company here last time but over today's distance and he gets the token vote on that basis. Music Stop was tailed off at Epsom last time but makes more appeal than Chanceuse on her earlier efforts over the minimum trip.
