Brave Bear looks the pick in a wide open finale, Queen Of Night and Mystery pips should also be involved in the finish. Tim Easterby's three-year-old had shown very little before landing a modest handicap at Hamilton. The winning margin was just half a length but there seemed to be plenty in the locker. with further improvement expected she can make it back to back victories. Queen Of Night hasn't raced since chasing home I Wish at Wolverhampton in January. Her turf form of last season was of a decent standard and if fit she will be hard to keep out of the places. Mystery Pips, a recent winner on the all-weather, doesn't look badly treated on her return to the grass and should be there or thereabouts. The best of the others could be Sahara Silk, but Brave Bear appears on the upgrade and looks the best option.
