Meridius and Sebs Sensei have both had plenty of chances. The latter has been placed over track and trip but neither inspire much confidence. Aboody has shown nothing so far but Madame Mime Artist finished a bit closer at Kempton last time. Chantrea is related to a Listed winner in France but was tailed off on her debut at Pontefract back in June. She can only improve on that, but the vote goes to the newcomer ERMINE RUBY. A half-sister to top-class sprinter and Group 1 winner Maarek, Charlie Hills' filly may well be good enough to make a winning start in this company.
