Gold Chain (7/2), Our Valentina (7/2), Vic's Last Stand (9/2), Catchthemoonlight (13/2), Miss Maiden Over (7/1), Lagavara (7/1), Indy Island (22/1), This Thyne Jude (25/1), Paper Roses (33/1)

Verdict

Few of these appeal as being well handicapped and it may pay to focus on those with room to improve on recent efforts. Our Valentina won a minor race at Navan in the style of a mare who would appreciate this stiffer test of stamina. If as effective on this quicker ground she must go close for a respected trainer/rider combination. VICS LAST STAND shaped really well at Market Rasen last time after a four month break over a trip that was undeniably short of her best. The champion jockey retains the mount and she can go one better. Gold Chain is one never to dismiss around here and she has a bright chance of reaching a place at generous odds from this mark.
  1. Vic's Last Stand
  2. Our Valentina
  3. Gold Chain
