MAULESDEN MAY faded over a longer trip last time but had been in fine form before that and included a course and distance success among her earlier three wins. She’s preferred to Dream Machine, who won at Epsom last month but is upped 5lb. Road To Dubai is only 2lb higher than an earlier win at Goodwood while Meccabah has been placed in maidens and goes handicapping for the first time. Katebird has a shout off her current mark and is preferred to Leicester winner Big Time Dancer in this grade.
