Past Forgetting showed promise over a mile here on debut and, as she's out of a Sadler's Wells mare, seems certain to appreciate the step up in distance. Le Maitre Chat was easy to back at Newbury in April but finished third, despite showing signs of inexperience. She hasn't raced since, however, while Dalasi may do better in handicaps. NANCY FROM NAIROBI has been very highly tried this year and surely has the ability to win an ordinary maiden. She was fourth in the Musidora in May and a repeat of that form would be good enough. Crowded may be best of the rest.
