Most of these arrive in decent form and three-year-olds have a good record. Starlight Serenade is from the younger brigade but she was a bit disappointing at Haydock while Tullia couldn't handle Shimba Hills at Ffos Las though she reportedly lost a shoe. Speciality completed a double over this track and trip last month but the form hasn't worked out particularly well and third-placed Emperatriz should get much closer at the revised weights. Hot Mustard was receiving 4lb from Speciality when beating her narrowly at Yarmouth in May. She's now getting 13lb so should have no difficulty confirming the form. TRULEE SCRUMPTIOUS gained the only success of her career on soft ground here in May and has been competing in much faster conditions subsequently. She's only 4lb higher and in the expectation of good ground she's taken to get back on the winning trail.
