There are several unexposed types in this including last month's Lingfield third Alpine Mist and December's Kempton scorer Reimpose. Lady Guinevere has yet to finish out of the frame and was second over 1m2f here in October and she's preferred to Lady Red Oak and Southwell second Fruit Pastille. CRYSTAL NYMPH didn't do a lot wrong in her first season and her final two starts were in better races than this. The handicapper could probably have given her a couple of pounds more in this and she can get off the mark at the fifth time of asking as Charmy Dukesse ran poorly on her Turf debut and is now blinkered.
