AFRAID OF NOTHING clearly improved for her debut experience when finishing a narrow second in a much stronger race than this at Beverley late last month. Based on that evidence, the daughter of Charm Spirit should be very hard to beat this afternoon. Buto showed enough promise on his first start to suggest that he could make the frame today, while Scallywagtail and Compensate are others who merits consideration.

Pour La Victoire has to be respected following his recent Brighton win but he is arguably at his best at that track and his life is made harder today by a 4lb penalty. With that in mind, the preference is for LA SIOUX, who was third in a stronger race than this at Doncaster last time out and that followed back-to-back victories in May. Savitar and Thechildren'strust complete the shortlist.

KNOWING filled second place at Yarmouth last time out in his bid to follow a victory at the same venue and the in-form gelding has to be given the utmost respect this afternoon. Isle of Wolves won over C&D a couple of weeks ago and he is an obvious threat to the selection off just a 4lb higher mark. Sootability edges out The Dancing Poet to be the pick of the remainder.

C'EST NO MOUR returned to winning ways over track and trip last time and is expected to defy a 3lb rise and follow up to notch a quick double. Allegiant chased the selection home that day and is fancied to play a supporting role once more. The pick of the remainder may be Mandalayan, who offered more in 0-90 company at Newbury when last sighted and is a potential improver now lowering his sights.
