UNILIT picked up really well from the back when second at Bath on her debut. She missed out by only a head and Mick Channon's filly is likely take a more prominent early position today. Richter Scale finished a couple of lengths ahead of Zeeda when third on her introduction at Ripon but something was amiss with Krystallite last time having run well for second at Wolverhampton on her first start and Lady Argentum has some improving to do. Saturn Lace, a sister to winning sprinter Kodatish, makes more appeal than Dawaa of the newcomers.
