Storyline did the job quite nicely over course and distance last month suggesting a contest of this nature is within her capabilities. especially with just four runs on the board. However, VODKA CHASER has gone well over the minimum trip on fast ground the last twice, runs off an unchanged mark and the promising Ali Rawlinson takes off a useful 7lb - all of which may just be enough to see the Baltic King filly land a first career success. Her performance behind Naivasha reads especially well in the context of the demands of this contest. Raise A Billion is in good heart presently with three solid efforts on a variety of ground in the past month and should get involved here on that evidence.
