CATALINAS DIAMOND's two victories last year came over this course and distance on good to firm ground and she's back on the same mark as the second of them. Pat Murphy's mare has had a couple of runs to blow away the cobwebs and should go close as she holds Wolverhampton second Lucky Clover on the form book. Quantum Dot won at Wolverhampton in January and showed a bit more reverting to 5f last time, though has yet to make the frame on Turf. Krazy Paving has been racing over further but Temple Road has plenty of pace and could be a danger if on a going day.
