Top Totti represents a yard in terrific form since the freeze abated. Definitely Better, Ellnando Queen and Etoile Tantum are other newcomers to monitor in the betting but a few of these have already shown some ability. Molly's A Diva won on her debut at Ffos Las but it's never easy to defy a penalty in these races. August Hill only found one too good at Taunton in December but WOODLAND WALK is probably the one to be on as she was clear of the third when runner-up to Quick Decisson at Wincanton and will know more today.
