Honeymoon Express outran her odds by some way when runner-up to Ghasabah here last time over 6f but will be suited by this five and has every chance if that latest effort was a realistic indicator of her ability. Blessing Box is a consistent filly from a yard that does particularly well here and should be in the mix once again whilst Hand In Glove was a little low-key last time when outpointed here by Pixilated in a small-field affair. GREEN MONKEY has been called a few names in the past by many a pundit but silenced detractors last time when staying on nicely to collect at this venue over this trip. This looks slightly tougher but the Green Desert gelding is taken to follow up off just a 2lb higher mark now he's tasted success.
