Although he is far from an obvious one over this trip if pedigree is any guide, Algris should be checked in the market to gauge any confidence, but in an interesting seller we'll side with MISSCOMPLACENT. Ann Duffield's runner was a handicap winner over this trip at Wolverhampton last time and should be suited by 5f over this even slower surface. She was runner-up when tried in this grade in the summer, is consistent enough for one of her rating of 60, and will take some beating. The potential improver in the field could be Heresellie, who won a seller over course and distance when last seen in July. The assessor has deemed that worthy of a mark of 55, so she would appear to have a bit to find, but is unexposed and not ruled out. Beyaz Villas has to be of interest, having been runner-up in both a seller and, more recently, a maiden. The return to this trip and grade will suit and he is feared.
