Imshivalla steps up in class in a bid to land a hat-trick of course victories and will find this tougher. OXSANA moves in the opposite direction having run well for third in a Class 2 handicap at Newbury last time and should go very close with a similar effort. The Haggas filly gets the vote with Lockhart looking a danger as he is less exposed than Flycatcher and wasn't beaten far when short of room at Haydock last week.
