A change of tactics revitalised MARGOT DID at Sandown last week as she made all to beat Dinkum Diamond by five lengths. If in the same mood here, Michael Bell's three-year-old should take all the beating though isn't as well drawn today. Tommy Stack had a winner at Royal Ascot earlier this week and sent over Sugar Free to take this in 2009. The County Tipperary trainer is represented by Celerina this time, who won at Dundalk before finishing third in a competitive handicap at York. Ladies Are Forever hasn't quite managed to recapture last year's smart form so far this season but wasn't beaten far at Haydock last time and is back over 5f for the first time since finishing third in the 2010 Queen Mary at Ascot. Solid handicapper Favourite Girl and Cork second Katla, trained by dairy farmer John Grogan, look best of the rest.
