Eye Of Eternity is unexposed on ground this soft and if enjoying the cut could play a part after two solid placed efforts in her last two runs. Just half a length separated CATCHANOVA and Lutine Charlie at Salisbury last time and there could be that little to separate them again as both run off the same 2lbs disparity here. We just side with the first named to confirm the placings. Just Jimmy is more of a fan of the artificial surfaces but the more rain that falls on the turf the better for soft ground lover Lordship who may represent decent each-way value. Meer Und Wind has started to find her rhythm and was a creditable runner-up on seasonal debut so cannot be ruled out of calculations. Petomic should be competitive off this mark but our vote goes to Catchanova.
