Verdict

A few of these can be given a chance but GREVILLEA has the more recent form. She's penalised for winning at Windsor last time but scored by five lengths and can go in again. Crystal Lake is another recent winner and he makes his handicap bow having won a maiden at Kempton while both Champagne Sydney and El Beau signed off last term with wins in maiden company. Snow Squall never threatened despite making the frame in a couple of handicaps in September but Shot In The Sun looks up to winning off her current mark. Maid In Rio is harder to fancy having only won a lowly seller at Musselburgh last year.
