Lacey scored over track and trip in December but hasn't looked like winning since and was over seven lengths behind Travel back at this course last month. The latter is also proving unreliable as she failed to land the odds in similar company here last week. TRACKS OF MY TEARS has the more consistent form, winning twice over 1m4f here and going close on another couple of occasions at the end of last year. She gets the nod despite returning from a lay-off. Turjuman and Mr Vendman arrive out of form and are hard to fancy.
Turjuman (USA) 66-1 (8-6) Mid-division, ridden over 2f out, kept on same pace, never on terms, 7th of 11, 6l behind Amir Pasha (8-6) at Redcar 1m 6f hcp 0-65 (6) gf in May.
