The market should prove the best guide and it would be no surprise to see a newcomer successful. Molly's A Diva has a fine jumping pedigree and should be ideally suited by a test of stamina as should Land Of Vic, whose dam is from the family of See More Business. Brantingham Breeze showed nothing on her debut but should improve along with Une Des Bieffes, who showed good pace for a long way on her debut at Hereford. EMILY'S FLYER hasn't been seen for over a year but ran well enough when runner-up to Bonne Fee at Hereford to suggest she's up to winning this despite the absence.
