PARSLEY is likely to start at short odds for this having made a very promising start behind the well-backed Polar Vortex at Nottingham. She was only beaten a head and should go one better. Stablemate Step To The Shears has a decent pedigree and could easily make the frame while another newcomer, Little Palaver, is out of a mare that has already produced a couple of winning sprinters. But Come Uppence wasn't beaten far at either Leicester or Chester and looks the main danger.
