There are three previous winners in this but the one to be on looks to be REYAMOUR, who took a while to get on top against the penalised Captain Sharpe at Hereford but is lightly-raced and will know more today. Miss Tique only won a weak race in the French provinces in June and has her first start for Venetia Williams, while So Is She didn't appear to beat much at Fakenham. Symphony Of Love is only modest but Schism stayed well on the Flat and could be interesting on her hurdling debut.
