Dual Polytrack winner Miss Dashwood should go well with a couple of runs under her belt and makes more appeal than recent Sandown winner Lyric Ballad. The latter can confirm running with Equitissa but Pompeia is facing a tougher task than of late and may struggle. Iffraaj Pink steps up in distance for her handicap debut having won at Nottingham but Musikhani found one too good when favourite at Chepstow last time and RAUSHAN is preferred. She scored at the first time of asking when successful over track and trip with a subsequent winner behind and Sir Michael Stoute's filly ticks all the boxes in this.
