None of these instil much confidence. The eight-year-old STANDFIELD BAY has had just the three starts on the Flat and been placed at Wolverhampton in a couple of those. She gets a token vote ahead of Charlotte Rhodes, beaten out of sight at Lingfield last time despite finishing runner-up. Silver Marizah's latest third at this track is also misleading as she finished a distance behind the winner while though Marina Ballerina has made the frame over shorter trips, she has a stack to find at the weights with the selection.
