It could pay to stick with top weight BOONGA ROOGETA. She beat the re-opposing Elsie Bay in soft ground at Bath last time with a bit in hand and can confirm superiority despite the worse terms. Inffiraaj steps up back up in trip after finishing second over a mile but was well beaten on her only previous attempt at 1m2f while Tresabella and Blackamoor Harry are others putting their stamina to the test for the first time. Today's distance is no problem for Love Grows Wild who has been thereabouts off today's mark recently and could prove a bigger threat.
