Apart from a fall at Musselburgh in December, Pena Dorada has been most consistent over fences and deserves a change of luck but it may be worth giving another chance to SIGNALMAN. He had legitimate excuses when pulled up in the race in which Pena Dorada finished second at Wetherby last month and is better judged on an earlier second over this C&D in November, when he had Lucinda Russell's charge behind despite conceding 7lb. Ruff Diamond could figure if brushing up his jumping but Lets Go Girls is best watched on her fencing bow.
