Dutch Rose is perfectly capable of going close on her day but it's hard to predict when that will be and Available is another inconsistent sort who finished nearly last at Leicester in June having won at the same track before that. Elle Woods was all out to win at Carlisle last time and a further 5lb rise may scupper her hopes of a hat-trick but Shesastar won last year's renewal off a higher mark and it would be no surprise to see her bounce back. HIDDEN BELIEF bolted up in a maiden at Chepstow last time by seven lengths. This is tougher but Ralph Beckett's filly gets the vote to continue winning ways now the penny has finally dropped.
