Too Generous has only tasted defeat once so far under Rules. She hasn't run for a while but Mikey Ennis has won on her before and his claim will help David Pipe's mare on her return. Molly's A Diva showed improved form to dead-heat at Warwick last time and may be getting her act together but the handicapper looks to have a firm grip on Midnight Belle and Top Totti. MINI MUCK has won three of her five starts over hurdles and still looks to be on an upward curve. She had a bit in hand under Ryan Hatch at Warwick last month and can complete her hat-trick off a 7lb higher mark, though Russie With Love looked to be on the way back at Taunton in November.
