Descaro has been hurdling of late but was well beaten over track and trip back in May. PASS THE TIME has also been jumping but finished a close-up third over course and distance last month in what looked a more competitive race. She gets the vote ahead of Rock Peak, who also has claims on his latest effort at Ffos Las and Noor Al Haya, who could make her presence felt with a repeat of her latest second at Warwick.
