A 6lb rise but paid to Askaud's winning run at Goodwood last time while Ghanaian failed to cope with a 9lb rise over a mile here in June. Back over 7f today, the Godolphin filly should be thereabouts but it could pay to stick with MALEKAT JAMAL. She landed a Class 2 handicap over course and distance on her latest start and David Simcock's filly can confirm earlier running with Tipping Over to land a hat-trick. Alice's Dancer has a chance on earlier form with the selection and Diamond Belle has plenty of room for further improvement on only her second outing of the season.
