Qeethaara has been placed to good effect by Mark Brisbourne but her winng run camd to an end at Haydock on Friday and she may be too high in the weights now. She has the beating of Wiseman's Diamond on earlier form, however, and the latter has since won at Ripon. Spavento scored at Newcastle last time and can figure whilw File And Paint has her first start for new connections after winning for Jim Bolger at Navan, but the vote goes to CHRISTMAS LIGHT. She's 6lb lower than when winning at York last year and wasn't disgraced behind the potentially Group-class Submission on her latest start.
