Less than a length separated Avonrose and SONG TO THE MOON at the finish when third and fourth respectively at Lingfield last time. However, the official distances don't tell the whole story as the latter lost six lengths at the start with first-time cheekpieces the likely cause. They've been discarded here and George Baker's filly is fancied to return to winning ways. Shared Moment was all out to win at Lingfield recently and a 4lb rise could be enough to prevent her following up but Marksbury has every chance if forgiven his recent below par effort.
