COSMIC LOVE will likely prove popular now handicapping for the first time having returned the cosy winner of a novices race at Chepstow last month. The Haggas filly gets the vote though Kalagia will be no pushover having gone close in a higher grade at Beverley just four days ago and can race off the same mark today. Barnay moves in the opposite direction on the back of a second at Leicester and is preferred to We Are The World and Gendarme, who were both well beaten in the same race at Sandown last time.
