Only a handful of these arrive in any sort of form. LOOKS LIKE RAIN stands out among those as she followed-up a couple of place efforts with victory at Wolverhampton last time and Brian Ellison's filly looks capable of going in again in this. Albonny posted his best effort so far with a recent third over C&D and he's preferred to Squad, runner-up over 1m4f on his penultimate start while Lady Of Burgundy has claims on her earlier second over track and trip. Baan is dropped in class today and scored over today's trip earlier in his career.
