A 7lb rise for scoring over track and trip last time may anchor Lady Lunchalot and Santadelacruze has looked a shade high in the weights since winning here in August. Edgware Road arrives out of sorts but Persian Patriot ran well at this track last time despite finishing only sixth and is dropped in class today. MRS MICAWBER showed improvement on her handicap debut at Kempton when finishing some six lengths clear of the rest of the field in third place. Michael Bell's filly is the least exposed in this and can open her account.
