The consistent Glastonberry looks sure to run her race again in which case she'll go very close after scoring at Lingfield last month. Others have a bit more to find off their current marks including the likes of Chambles, Shaunas Spirit and Flamborough Breeze, all placed on their latest outings without threatening the winner. Ziefhd landed a couple plating races on the Polytrack last summer but a chance is taken on the returning ROEDEAN, who went close in tougher races than this on the Turf last season and has won four of her previous eight starts on the all-weather.
