Verdict

Under Approval went close at Wolverhampton on his penultimate start with Ealain Aibrean back in fourth. Gulland Rock just got the better of Baltic Spirit at Musselburgh in September when Princess Myla finished a couple of lengths behind and he could figure while Britain made the frame in a seller last time having slipped down the weights. FREDRICKA should be spot on now with a couple of runs on the all-weather under her belt. She gets the nod on last season's placed efforts on fast ground at Beverley and Ripon.
