Verdict

Seedless hasn't done a lot wrong since returning from injury, winning at Bangor and finishing second in small fields over longer trips at Hereford and Cartmel. But she may struggle to give 7lb to MADAMLILY here. John Quinn's mare was a shade disappointing when beaten at odds-on at Cartmel in August but her two Flat wins came on good ground so she should appreciate the quicker conditions here. Finellas Fortune looks the pick of the remainder, though Allbarkanobite could possibly improve on what she showed last season.
