Marvelino has had plenty of chances but is getting no closer and the returning Red Gift could improve past the former if reproducing his fifth at Beverley last July. Princess Cammie went close in a seller over C&D last time but the remainder with experience have shown nothing so far to recommend them. The newcomer LASARALEEN is related to a couple of winners, including dual Polytrack winner Grand Honour, and Richard Fahey's filly could well prove good enough on her debut.
