Lady Lunchalot beat Winter Music 2l in a Lingfield seller before a better run in a Nottingham handicap. Jawinski ran his best race to date when stepped up to this trip for the first time at Wolverhampton and won't need to improve much to get involved. Pink Mischief took advantage of very firm ground to score over a mile at Brighton in September but this is a big leap in trip. Aphrodite Spirit was beaten in a seller on her penultimate start and Karl Marx finished last of six in a poor Kempton handicap on his reappearance so the vote in a very poor contest goes to TILLY T, who hasn't had much racing and appeared to show a bit of improvement when stepped up to 1m2f at Nottingham.
