Alys Love sets the standard with a mark of 74 but has had plenty of chances. PRINCIPLE EQUATION lost out by a head when starting a short-priced favourite at Bath. But the winner went on to land a handicap so Ralph Beckett's filly is fancied to make amends in this. Venturous Spirit represents last year's winning yard and is preferred to the returning Redinha after a modest debut at Newmarket and Dubai Hadeia should go well having finished ahead of Cayman Cry at Salisbury on her introduction.
