Good As Gold has now had 20 starts in bumpers and over hurdles without winning and though her form is strong enough she's not one to trust. PINK HAT has been expensive to follow since her first two bumper victories but she's probably had excuses in her last couple of starts and can make amends here. Definite Elegance is another long-time maiden who has run poorly in her last two starts while Hell Cat Maggie's best runs have been over longer trips.
