SAMASANA has finished runner-up in sellers in all three previous starts over C&D. She had little chance against the progressive Roedean last time and a repeat effort should be good enough to take care of today's opposition. Rhyme Royal was still beaten over six lengths when third at this track last month and Burnwynd Spirit looks a bigger threat on his recent placed efforts in handicap company over shorter trips here. Holy Empress should go well for an in-form yard and Pink Evie is not without a chance as they both make their debuts on the Fibresand.
