TRULY MADLY turned in a shocker at Wolverhampton last time but this represents a big drop in class and her form on Turf suggests she's the one to beat if anywhere near her best. Angels Calling has the next highest rating and, though both wins have come over 6f, does have form over this longer trip so can't be ignored. Marsh Dragon has Paul Hanagan doing the steering and could make the frame but Admirals Walk was readily brushed aside in this grade at Chepstow earlier in the month and few of the others have much chance at the weights.
