CHAPTER FIVE has been found a good opportunity to follow-up her recent course win. She scored over 1m5f here last week and is only 2lb higher for this. Princesse Fleur opened her account on the Flat with a win over 2m2f in soft ground at Chepstow but this is tougher and previous course and distance winner Lucky Diva could prove a bigger threat as she drops further down the weights. It's hard to make a case for any of the remainder on what little they've shown of late.
