Monks Stand drops in class but is best on Fibresand. LALANIA’s only victory to date came in a maiden over course and distance in May but she’s not done a lot wrong since and has been dropped a pound since her latest fourth at Brighton. Headgear is applied here and Stuart Williams’ filly can get back to winning ways. La Fortuna has remained competitive after rattling up a four-timer in the spring and Case Key has claims while Chez Vegas should have benefited from a comeback run at Newmarket. Tawaafoq and Faithful Promise are starting to look well treated while Kraka, Just Us Two and Strategic Heights all arrive in decent form.
