Denmead is penalised for winning over 2m at Wolverhampton but Ayr Of Elegance drops back down a grade having landed a double at Lingfield in March. Miss Tiger Lily has been thereabouts without winning on the all-weather over the winter and MAZALTO finished a close-up fifth at Kempton on her reappearance having slipped 6lb down the weights last year. She finished ahead of Maestro Mac last time and can go close off her current mark. An easy winner at Kempton in November, Art Of Swing is 9lb higher on his return but Three Star General had a promising recent outing over hurdles for new connections having failed to win in Ireland last year for Aidan O’Brien and could go well.
