A line through recent dual winner Rummaging suggests LILY OF KENMARE and La Belle Maison are very closely matched with the former just about coming out best. Both have finished close up behind that winner and though the selection was slightly disappointing when a beaten favourite next time she should have the edge here. Light Zabeel was having his first start for new connections when mid-division behind Golden Shoe here two weeks ago and is expected to do better while To Choose, who makes his debut on the surface, looks best of the remainder.
