It's taking something of a chance to row in with STORYLINE considering she couldn't have performed much worse when a thoroughly well beaten last of seven behind Straits Of Malacca at Pontefract last time out. However, previous efforts had looked progressive at an ordinary level and she's afforded another chance, especially with a course and distance success to her name. Maybe it was her first experience of soft ground that was such a problem to the Easterby filly last time. Orient Class also disappointed in that same Pontefract contest and is another deserving of a second chance as he'd looked very much on the upgrade for the Midgley team previously. Madagascar Moll has dropped to a fair mark for David O' Meara to exploit and is shortlisted along with Biscuiteer and Thornaby Princess in a trappy heat.
