EARTH AMBER kept very good company on the Flat last year and made a promising start over hurdles at Warwick when only finding the useful Wadswick Court too good. She should go one better here with that experience under her belt. Kathleen Frances appears to be going backwards and Slipper Satin has been well beaten on the all-weather since finishing third at Lingfield but Seas Of Green has hinted at ability and newcomer Miss Fortywinks was placed on soft ground on the Flat, though rarely looked like winning.
