DEFINITELY GLAD only found Free Thinking too good in a similar contest on the Polytrack at Kempton last month. She may lack a bit of scope but is probably the one to beat in this finale ahead of Exeter and Newbury runner-up Moll Flanders and Be My Present, though the latter will strip fitter for her run behind Captain Cutter in a Listed race at Ascot. Abigail Lynch won a point-to-point in Ireland back in October but is probably best watched here along with debutantes Dervla and Land Of Vic.
