Modest form in maidens for Roger Varian but rates a potential improver now handicapping for new trainer Archie Watson. Market support significant.

Verdict

LADY ALAVESA took a step in the right direction when second over this trip at Chelmsford last time and seemingly just didn't stay when disappointing over 1m2f at Salisbury previously. She's now sporting first-time cheekpieces and is narrowly preferred to Aqua Libre, who is 5lb higher than when scoring over this trip on firm ground at Bath in May. Any money for Archie Watson's handicap debutant Sary Arqa would be notable on her stable bow.

Verdict

A chance AQUA LIBRE will be able to dominate in this small field and she gets the nod but strong market support for Sary Arqa on her stable/handicap debut would put a slightly different slant on things.
