An interesting little contest in which none of the runners can be left out of calculations. Elle Rebelle may have a little to find at the weights but Reggae Star will enjoy the step up in distance after placed efforts over 7f at Ayr and Thirsk last year while Snoqualmie Chief was third over the trip at Salisbury in October. FOLLOWEVERYRAINBOW may have just needed her reappearance over a longer trip at Lingfield and gets the vote on her fifth at Sandown in the autumn, though Estiqaama can be forgiven her run on heavy ground at Newbury and will be a big threat.
