KINEMATIC attempted to make all in soft ground over 6f at Newmarket a fortnight ago but was caught in the closing stages. She may well hold on for the win this time back over the minimum trip and gets the vote. Magical Memory never threatened in Class 2 company at Chester but is expected to do better here, though one of the newcomers may prove a bigger threat. Squats and Lady In White are worth noting in the betting while Ivawood cost 220,000gns and represents last year's winning yard.
