Plenty of these with chances but BUTTON DOWN appears to have the best recent form. She ran well on her handicap bow at Ripon and has the beating of Fiery Sunset on collateral form from earlier in the year. Saarrem also has leading claims on his third at Kempton and Jonny Rae is not easily overlooked stepping up in trip after a close-up sixth at Newbury. Prairie Rose and Soundtrack are others to consider in what could turn out a hot maiden race.
