This has been a good race for favourites with five of the six obliging. JUNEAU, 2-2 for Franny Norton, won well at Haydock last week and is taken to defy her penalty. Couldn't Could She, who beat the selection into second at Windsor last time, has possibilities again but it could be left to Becky Sharp to fill the forecast position.[Andrew Mount]

Ten-race maiden, looking less than straightforward (hung left) when going down by a head in three-runner Brighton handicap latest (1m2f, firm); likely placed at best.

Record in turf handicaps reads 214121 including comfortable Haydock success under similarly big weight last week (1m2f, good to firm); 6lb penalty to contend with but should again be thereabouts.

Pleasing debut on the AW for Martyn Meade but finished last at Brighton on first run for this yard and found little for pressure under forcing tactics at Nottingham latest (1m, good to firm); first-time visor needs to have significant impact.

Some promise on slow turf before beating only a couple home in 1m Kempton handicap; switch to quicker ground could suit on breeding (sire 10-70, +£22.60, in Britain and Ireland this summer) and interesting with yard going strongly.
