A few of these arrive on the back of victories but Meaning Of Life's win came at Nottingham back in August and preference is for stablemate EURO CHARLINE. The latter was sent off 20/1 on her racecourse debut over track and trip but scored by three lengths and there should be plenty more to come from Marco Botti's filly. Beautiful Stranger will find this tougher than the lowly Southwell handicap he won last month but Mon Petit Secret beat a subsequent winner over course and distance last time and may get involved. The remainder are more exposed and harder to fancy unless Vodka Time can rediscover the promise shown early last year.
