Bescot Springs has been running poorly and his victories have come in better conditions so he's overlooked with a big weight. Rinnagree Rosie beat subsequent winner Frankie's Promise over 2m4f here in January with Finaghy Ayr 12 lengths behind but had no answer when well behind Layla Joan over an extra two furlongs on a return visit. Amore Mio went up 7lb for his course and distance success in November and has been unable to cope despite being well supported. BOLLIN FIONA wasn't beaten far in a better handicap than this here last January and has mainly been chasing. She's 8lb lower in the weights and gets the vote in a poor contest.
