The unbeaten Rivas Rhapsody scored at Kempton when last seen at the track in December and looks sure to be in the shake-up on her return despite a 5lb higher mark. SARATOGA SLEW has the more recent form, however, with a second at Lingfield to her credit and Marco Botti's filly is capable of going one better in this with that run under her belt. Jumeirah Palm Star and Bint Alzain should have more to offer and the same applies to By Invitation, a four-length maiden winner over 6f at Kempton in January.
