NEVER A QUARREL went very close over track and trip recently and gets a tentative vote with a 7lb claimer helping her cause. She'll need to reverse earlier running with last year's winner Novabridge and Falasteen but Jeremy Gask's filly looks up to the task. Mossgo has to come into the reckoning on his latest placed efforts and makes more appeal than the unreliable Danzoe, well beaten last time having won at Wolverhampton before that. Imaginary Diva is high enough in the weights now after scoring at Yarmouth back in August and may need the outing anyway.
