It's hard to have much confidence in any of this bunch. Britain won a maiden race over track and trip but has finished last in both subsequent starts in handicaps. Rebel Code has also failed to beat a rival in his last two outings and Who Splashed Me was still beaten five lengths when placed over course and distance in December. DIAMONDSINTHESKY has been competing over 6f so far this year but was beaten only a head in a maiden race over the minimum trip here before that. She gets a token vote with headgear applied for the first time today.
