Shilpa won at Fakenham in between her more usual dire efforts and Lilac Belle scored at the same track last May but is 7lb higher today. That's about it as far as winning form goes and the token vote goes to TIRADIA on the back of an improved third at Kempton in November. Southfork's best form of last year would give him a shout and Mutanaker finished closer at Huntingdon last time while Our Phylli Vera could make the frame dropped in class.
