Formscan - Runner-up on her last three starts, including over C&D on her most recent run, CREM FRESH is entitled to go one better off a 3lb raised mark and she should not be taken lightly. She was only denied by a neck over this trip at Lingfield off the same mark on her penultimate start and is expected to go very close, but I Giorni should not be dismissed despite having to shoulder top weight. Hazy Dream completes the shortlist.
