There's not a lot between Swehan, third over a mile here last time, and Wilhana on the form book. The latter has only found one too good in three starts over 1m1f at Wolverhampton and this is not a strong maiden. But FROST FIRE is preferred as she is likely to leave her debut sixth at Pontefract well behind in time as she pulled hard and was very green at the West Yorkshire track and her early exertions took their toll in the closing stages. Tumbledown may need this after a year on the sidelines but could be worth monitoring for future reference.
