Jane Mangan is obviously an eye-catching booking for the improved and well-named hold-up specialist Last Minute Lisa and it will be fascinating to see how she times her effort up the long Newbury straight. However, she's looked more at home on turning tracks and LIL ROCKERFELLER is preferred under the excellent Serena Brotherton. The Hannon colt showed a good attitude to open his account at Doncaster, should appreciate the extra two furlongs and remains open to further progress after a mere four starts. Couloir Extreme and Victor's Bar are respected as last-time winners but Amanto, a rare Flat runner for Paul Nicholls, may need the outing.
