Stunning View was a big disappointment at Bath last time and the jury is out on her at present while Easter Diva finished last at Lingfield on her latest start after going close over a shorter trip at this track in October. Nashville showed little on his debut for Ian Williams here a fortnight ago and the newcomer SHIRAZZ may well be good enough. It's no surprise to see the daughter of Shirocco make her debut over middle-distances given she's a half-sister to recent C&D winner Peachez and Jeremy Noseda's filly gets the nod to make a winning start.
