Imaginary Diva arrives in good form having won here on her penultimate start with today's rivals Do More Business and Bookiesindex Boy in close attendance. That trio are closely matched again but whatever the outcome of their personal fight, none are expected to finish in front of STONECRABSTOMORROW. Michael Attwater's charge landed a double over C&D in June and has been keeping better company since. He can return to winning ways in this grade.
