Sapphire Rouge and Tara Rose both carry penalties and won't find this easy after a short break. Cloudy Wager also returns from a lay-off but was second twice at this track last season and beaten less than a length on her latest start in a handicap. Flite only found one too good in bumpers at Uttoxeter and Southwell in April but the one to beat here may be FLY TOWN, who wasn't beaten far by a decent yardstick on her hurdling debut at Ludlow and will appreciate today's better ground.
