NEIGE D'ANTAN stands out in this by virtue of her consistency. Both wins have come at Wolverhampton but she's been placed over C&D before and Sir Mark Prescott's filly was beaten only a nose off today's mark last week. Officer In Command is weighted to reverse earlier running although the selection has improved since and the former finished upsides Legal Legacy when unplaced over track and trip recently. Maz can figure off her current mark but just the one victory in 19 starts doesn't boost confidence and Edgware Road is struggling at present.
