King Calypso was raised only 2lb for scoring at Lingfield earlier but still found one too good here last time. The remaining trio all took part in a similar contest over track and trip last month. Third-placed Assoluta has subsequently won over 1m2f at the track and Windshield, who finished fifth, went on to score at Lingfield. But it could be LITTLE FLO's turn today as she's better off with the latter pair on today's terms and also has more scope for improvement. Brendan Powell's filly gets the vote.
Windshield 6-4fav (8-10) Chased winner, ridden well over 1f out, stayed on to press winner and every chance inside final furlong, no extra and held final 110 yards, 2nd of 9, 1 1/4l behind Underwritten (9-10) at Lingfield 2m hcp 0-60 (6) pol in Jul.
