QEETHAARA is more than capable of winning this if on a going day. She beat The Noble Ord a couple of lengths over the trip at Lingfield two runs ago and is only a pound worse off here. The grey is preferred to stablemate Lady Tycoon and Titan Diamond, who only beat one home at Lingfield on Friday. For Shia And Lula has never raced off a mark this low before but has a poor strike-rate and a penalty will make life a bit tougher for Thursday's Chepstow scorer Tooley Woods.
