Russian Bullet remains 8lb higher than December's victory at Kempton despite being beaten on three occasions since, while Lady Caprice has risen the same amount after showing much improved form to beat Villa Reigns over today's trip at Wolverhampton. WELEASE BWIAN also beat the latter when scoring over 5f at Wolverhampton a week ago, but in a faster time and Stuart Williams' charge is taken to defy a penalty and follow-up. The remainder will do well to get involved with Marie's Fantasy probably coming out best.
