A couple of these are looking to make amends having returned losing favourites last time. Midnight Flower is one of them as she only just failed to make all over 7f here in October on the back of an earlier narrow margin defeat over C&D. She has every chance but SHERINN is preferred as Roger Varian's filly will have come on for her first start since August when fading badly in the closing stages at Kempton earlier this month. Clock Opera finished closer at Ripon last time but that was back in May and Last Minute Lisa was still beaten four lengths when runner-up here last month. Spymistress is worth a second glance in the betting on her debut.
