NO COMPLAINING boasts the best recent form having won over the extended mile at Wolverhampton before being mugged at the post on her latest start at the same track. Today's extra furlong should be in her favour and she looks capable of taking this off her current mark. Empress Leizu's latest poor effort is off-putting but her second to the improving Final Drive before that gives her a chance, and a couple of these have the past form to figure including Starry Mount and Tous Les Deux.
