In depth

Verdict

Kentford Grey Lady did well last season but she faces a stiff task under top weight on her reappearance as a number of her rivals in this have already had a run. Florafern won at Worcester before finishing second at Ascot but TEMPEST RIVER was third in a decent contest at Wincanton and will strip fitter here. Ben Case's mare gets the nod though Justazippy was a promising third over an inadequate trip at Bangor in October and is still at the right end of the handicap. The four-year-olds One Lucky Lady and Rosairlie probably have a bit to find while Southway Star and All Annalena disappointed last time.
