Waveguide has already won four times this year and remains at the top of her game. She's still climbing the weights but Lewis Walsh takes off 7lb and she's entitled to be thereabouts again. Sequined won over a longer trip at Lingfield last time but should have the pace for this and is on an upward curve while Token Of Love has turned in a couple of decent efforts this season and should be winning soon. SENSIBLE WAY was very green on debut but showed massive improvement to score at Goodwood just six days later and could be a blot on the handicap here if progressing again. She gets the nod as Tullia struggles to get her head in front.
