Ishiamber was hampered at Ponteract attempting to land a five-timer though looked beaten at the time. But Interception recorded a hat-trick on the Polytrack last year and went close off today's mark at Brighton in June. Maria Bella had rattled up a double at this track before finding one too good at Leicester but the vote goes to GOWN. She's not the most reliable, as a poor recent effort at Newbury proves, but a repeat of her earlier second at Newmarket in better company than this should see Ed Dunlop's filly go very close.
