Truckers Darling thrived in the testing ground when stepped up to 3m1f at Southwell and should certainly go well again though this is a much shorter trip. BRIJOMI QUEEN has won a bumper in heavy going and also scored on good ground over timber. She's been a bit outclassed in her latest races but this looks her level and she can go in again. Conjola faced testing ground for the first time at Newcastle a month ago and ran her best race to date and Spring Over has shown glimpses of ability but Lacocodanza has done nothing so far.
