In depth

Verdict

Most of these find winning hard. Poste Restante remains a maiden but will be interesting if able to handle ground with cut on only a second start on Turf. There are ground concerns too about Cherry Princess as she was tailed off on her only start on soft but was good enough to claim a staying handicap at Goodwood last August, form that gives her strong claims here. She should not be too inconvenienced by the drop in trip either. Highlife Dancer is best when hearing his feet rattle whilst Corn Maiden is a possible but we'll go along with the veteran of the party in MAGICALMYSTERYTOUR. He goes well for an inexperienced pilot and arrives in good form after a couple of solid efforts. Admittedly, he hasn't won since 2010 but will handle soft ground and appeals as a solid each-way option at the very least.
