Solvanna has claims on this year's placed efforts on the all-weather and the same comment applies to Close Together. Actonetaketwo is another with recent form on the Polytrack and can figure while Al Zein and Thomasina may improve making their handicap debuts today. Princess Sheila has slipped down the weights but not as much as FAIR COMMENT. The latter is 14lb lower than when making her handicap debut in September and, after a decent fifth in better company at Goodwood last time, looks set to open her account.
