Six of the eight runners won last time out and the other two were placed so this is certainly competitive and the form may be worth following in the weeks ahead. Pether's Moon looks harshly treated for his win in a Kempton maiden while Swing Easy and Royal Prize also probably need to improve on recent victories on the Polytrack. AL JAMAL has had just the one run but Absolutely Right, who finished third in her maiden at Kempton in November, beat Emerging at Lingfield the following month which suggests the Godolphin filly is nicely treated here. She gets the nod ahead of Beverley second Nice Story and the unexposed Lady Pimpernel.
