Acquaint never looked like catching the winner when runner-up in similar company over track and trip in September. Honey Meadow was second over 6f here last time but was staying on at the finish and could figure over this longer trip. JUST RUBIE won her maiden over 7f at Wolverhampton earlier this month and Michael Blanshard's filly gets the nod to follow up with further progress likely. Fiftyshadesfreed scored over course and distance in between a couple of woeful efforts on Turf and Plough Boy showed a big improvement without threatening to win when fourth here last time.
