Secret Advice is back in form and will be fancied on the strength of a recent win at Musselburgh. Different is better than she's shown in her last couple of starts while there should be more to come from Kempton maiden winner Friendship Is Love but GREEN MONKEY should have her measure and can take this after another good run at Yarmouth, despite a further hike in the weights. The others all have to improve on recent form to take a hand in the finish.
