Wediddodontwe made a respectable return from a long absence when placed over 7f here but is penalised for making a winning start at Thirsk back in 2016. TEMERAIRE has been handicapping and also carries a penalty for an earlier maiden success at Lingfield where she beat Trotter over four lengths. She should confirm running despite the worse terms and may just edge affairs conceding weight to the three-year-olds. Shanghai Elastic looks best of the latter group unless the newcomers House Of Cards and Swiss Belle prove above average.
