Her form has really taken off on Tapeta this winter and ORIENTAL LILLY battled well when beating a subsequent winner on the step back up to 6f here three weeks ago. She has another 5lb rise in mark to deal with but is open to more progress and can strike again to make it 4-5 at this track. Heaven's Guest is feared most, though Born To Finish is interesting if he gets a decent pace and some luck, and Glorious Politics should be thereabouts if he can repeat the form of his third behind the selection 20 days ago.[David Moon]

Big improver since switched to Tapeta in November and completed a course hat-trick when battling well on the step back up to 6f here three weeks ago; up another 5lb but pulled clear with subsequent winner last time and is open to more progress; leading contender.

SUSP
First win since 2015 when landing 0-85 over C&D last month; no impact on the step back up to 7f here last time but that was in a Class 2 event and remains well treated on that penultimate form; could be a big factor again on this drop back in trip/grade.

Finished well when scoring at Kempton (6f) on penultimate run and things didn't go his way behind some rivals who raced more prominently at Chelmsford on Saturday; remains feasibly treated and is interesting if he gets a good pace and some luck back on Tapeta.

Form has been very mixed in eight starts but won C&D maiden last January and got back near his best when keeping-on third behind Oriental Lilly back at 6f here 20 days ago; ran into some trouble in that race and should be thereabouts if he can back that up.

Signed off for Dean Ivory with a second behind a subsequent winner at Chelmsford (7f) and similar form on first run for this yard when a staying-on fourth behind Heaven's Guest over C&D last month; needs to find some extra spark but remains well treated on his old form and could be dangerous.

Mainly struggled since his stylish win in Newbury maiden in July 2016 and beat only one rival in 6f Newmarket handicap in final run last year; now 28lb lower than for his opening mark but has plenty to prove on return for new yard and is untried on Tapeta.

Four wins at 5f on turf last spring/summer but was not at his best in final three runs last year; still 3lb higher than for last success and looks opposable now returned to 6f on AW after 136 days off.
