Veteran Taajub prefers a faster surface so Stan Moore’s three-year-old EVERKYLLACHY is fancied to defy the penalty she picked up for winning at Bath as she gets on well with Hollie Doyle. Flowing Clarets has been thereabouts in slightly better company lately so can’t be ignored but maiden Pride Of Angels took a backward step last time at Salisbury. Zavikon and Wotadoll also need to improve on recent efforts to figure.
