First Sargeant has been threatening to get his head in front with a couple of recent placed efforts and looks to have leading claims. But the three-year-old SMILE FOR ME has scope for improvement stepping up in trip after a second at Lingfield and she gets a speculative vote to come good in this. Byronegetonefree is another lightly-raced type with a chance and Lola Montez may get involved having returned a losing favourite on her latest start. Sexy Secret and Sheer Poetry could also go well in this lowly grade.
