ROZENE showed plenty of speed when only finding the race-fit Scarborough too good on her reappearance over track and trip. That run will have blown away any cobwebs and, lightly-raced, David Barron's filly can defy a 4lb higher mark in this. Flashy Queen couldn't cope with the higher grade at Windsor last time but had won at that track earlier and can't be ruled out while Fuel Injection would have a chance on his best form. The Dandy Yank wasn't disgraced following a break at Goodwood last time and looks the pick of the remainder.
