Ritsi and Light The World have both won on heavy ground, but that was a while ago and neither has shown much recently. Jeanry and Minkie Moon have an absence to overcome but Prickles would have claims as she was second over C&D on her reappearance and is now fitted with a hood. Kingaroo won a three-runner raced on heavy ground on the Flat at Doncaster in July and also scored on the Fibresand so is another to consider but we'll take a chance on the filly GO ANNIE, who won her bumper on soft ground and would take all the beating here if able to reproduce the form of her second to Cape Express at Worcester in the summer.
