Plenty of these have winning form over course and or distance, including our selection MOTIVATED CHOICE, who gets the nod ahead of Grand Palace and Lord Deevert. The pick is the least exposed, and makes her handicap debut for Luca Cumani. She's a half sister to a multiple winner on the all-weather, and has shown improvement with each run. She rewarded backers handsomely in breaking her maiden last time out in what was only her third run, and comes here gaining weight from most. Grand Palace and Lord Deevert are the only ones to be lower in the weights. The former won a lower grade handicap than this at Wolverhampton just under a fortnight ago, and positively revels in the polytrack. He does have a low draw to overcome though. Lord Deevert won here on his penultimate run, and again loves the all-weather. For such a lowly event it looks pretty competitive, but we'll side with Motivated Choice.
