This looks a good opportunity for NINE BEFORE TEN and she'll probably start a short price. She boasts the highest official rating, is well treated at the weights and her latest second at Ripon is easily the best recent form. For Life looks the one most likely to chase her home as he finished third in similar company at Ffos Las recently though Miss Firefly was placed in seller at Windsor in June. His Grace has bits of form in maidens but it's hard to make a case for any of the remainder.
