Debut wasn't devoid of promise and duly built on that when scoring at Catterick (5f, good). This is more demanding and she's drawn widest of all.

Mia Diva won nicely at Catterick last time but has to give weight to the boys as a result, including UPSTATE NEW YORK. Richard Fahey's charge was only beaten a neck into third here last time and a similar performance over the same track and trip could be enough. Dr Simpson made an impressive start to her racing career at Windsor in April and is interesting here.

BE LIKE ME has filled the runner-up spot on her last three outings, with the closest of those being when beaten a neck over this course and distance. She has first-time cheekpieces to help her and can get the better of Daffy Jane, who wasn't beaten far at Pontefract latest. Fizzy Feet was only beaten a length at Wolverhampton but has to reproduce her all-weather form on turf to have a chance.

More miss than hit subsequent to his decisive victory at Lingfield (1m, AW) in January, and it's easy enough to look elsewhere.

Has won ten races from 7f to 1m on ground varying from good to firm to good to soft and on the all-weather. Well beaten at 28-1 behind Limato when last of 8 on his latest outing in the Group 3 Randox Health Criterion Stakes at Newmarket over 7f (good to firm) last month.

Vanbrugh impressed on his reappearance at Thirsk and finished a fair 10th in the Wokingham at Royal Ascot so could have claims, while Beauty Filly bolted up at Goodwood last time but steps up out of the handicap ranks for this. Oh This Is Us won this race last year and is considered again, but MARIE'S DIAMOND gets the vote. Mark Johnston's colt finished in midfield in the Jersey Stakes last time and his front-running style should be suited to this track.

MOON KING is 4-4 since being gelded and stepped up to 1m6f this season and this extended trip is unlikely to prevent Ralph Beckett's progressive performer from extending his winning sequence further. Front runner Glutnforpunishment has been enjoying a purple patch over 1m3f to 1m5f himself and poses a tactical threat to all in this small field. Paradise Boy and Gabrial The One are both consistent types who cannot be ruled out either.

Went close off this mark at Beverley 3 starts back and not disgraced when fifth in 10-runner Redcar handicap last time. He's none too reliable, though, and latest win was back in December 2017.
