FAIRYINTHEWIND got up late to score over C&D on her latest outing leaving the impression there was more to come. She can confirm running with Chrissycross and go in again. Last year's Wolverhampton winner Al Freej has joined Brian Ellison and may improve for the step up in trip but Caramelita hasn't threatened since scoring at Yarmouth in October. Push Me has won twice on the Polytrack and can get involved off his current mark but Abigails Angel looks in need of some respite from the handicapper.
