It's impossible to find one without a chance in this very tight-looking fillies' handicap. The Gold Cheongsam, whose claim to fame came in the 2012 Weatherbys 2-y-o Stakes worth £300,000, has competed at a much higher level though she didn't cut much ice in Dubai in January. Bondesire had ROYAL RASCAL just over a length behind at Chester but has since run moderately at Epsom and it's the runner-up who looks the one to be on as he loves this track having won three times here in 2012 including a Listed contest. Third-placed Love Island had beaten the winner at Ripon earlier so she has to go on the shortlist. Mar Mar has been going very well against stiff opposition but has only won once in 16 starts which is a poor return for such a useful performer.
