Puzzle Time found only one too good over course and distance on her penultimate start and has strong claims. Gabrial The Terror wasn't beaten far when sixth at Lingfield a fortnight and he too has a decent shout. PHILOSOFY won a bumper at Catterick last month but is related to an all-weather winner on the Flat. David O'Meara's filly may well be up to landing an ordinary maiden over today's trip and gets the nod. The younger horses have some catching up to do but both Trafalgar Rock and Hallouella look likely to improve for the longer distance and are worth a second glance.
