Verdict

ANNALUNA has had a couple of starts on the Flat since scoring by seven lengths over hurdles at Exeter in October. She's taken to continue her progress in this and gets the vote. A repeat of Ruby Crown's earlier placed form at Market Rasen would see her in the mix here but she's shown nothing in a couple of recent starts while Kingsfold Flare ran well at Worcester in between poor efforts at the same track. Saintly Lady and My Viking Bay are others with bits of form that entitle them to consideration if producing similar efforts today.
