Supreme Quest was returning form nearly a year off the track when fourth at Kempton last time. She's entitled to come on for the outing and has leading claims on last season's second at Warwick. However, SWAN SONG showed bags of early pace over 7f at Newbury on her debut in October before fading in the closing stages and Andrew Balding's filly could be up to landing this on her reappearance. Cynthia Calhoun should be capable of better but Norlander makes more appeal on her close-up fourth on the Polytrack in November given she finished ahead of a future winner.
