Aqua Libre won last year’s renewal off a 6lb lower mark and debuts for a new yard after finishing well behind WAQT when the latter scored at Brighton last month. Alexandra Dunn’s charge has subsequently placed in a higher grade and gets another chance back at this level. Junoesque made a winning return at Brighton but has yet to win elsewhere while Aye Aye Skipper finished in front of Accomplice, Brockagh Cailin and Mister Musicmaster when fourth here last time but could only manage fifth in this last year. Screaming Gemini slips further down the weights still looking for his first win in 17 attempts.
