Placed in both starts for the Stoute yard last season, Pressure Point will likely be winning for new connections this year but hasn't raced for over a year. Maracuja has a shout on her best form though returned a losing favourite here last month and SOME SITE is preferred. The latter ran on well to claim third on her reappearance over 1m2f at Salisbury and any improvement on that would make David Simcock's filly the one to beat. Newcomer Hatton Springs makes little appeal on breeding and the remainder are hard to fancy.
