AUNTY AUDREY finished runner-up in this a year ago and scored over a mile on the track last month. She's 5lb higher than her victories but acts on the ground and still looks reasonably treated. Footstepsintime won on testing ground at Cork in May and had a long break before returning last month and producing another very good effort at Hamilton where he found 6f just on the short side. Stormy Air carries a 6lb penalty for completing a Cork double last week though both victories were on good going. Hatton Cross is consistent enough but rarely wins and has gone back up in the ratings for his two recent placed efforts. Lady Godiva is 0-17 and was well beaten on her only start on heavy going but 7lb claimer Andy Slattery rode a hat-trick on Saturday and Maysonette, still a maiden after 16 starts, could benefit from her rider's confidence.
