Silver Alliance has been placed four times this year and is back over a more suitable trip today. Stablemate The Ducking Stool is starting to come down the weights but struggles to get her head in front while Landesherr disappointed at Wolverhampton last time. MAYBEME never looked like catching Cottam Donny at Beverley last time but that still signalled a return to form for Neville Bycroft's mare and she has the ground in her favour here off a decent mark. She gets the nod with Follow The Flag out of sorts lately and much better of Fibresand in general.
