Verdict

Unsurprisingly claims can be made for a whole host in a tricky finale and it may well be worth chancing GAOT. Below her best at Exeter in December, she previously highlighted she's on a workable mark when runner-up in a big-field event at that venue and bounce back is distinctly possible back at this shorter trip. No No Tonic, Sawpit Sienna, Minnie Escape and Amelia's Dance head up the dangers.
