Charlotte Tizzard's Coombe Hill had Mustangsallyrally back in third when winning at the Mendip Farmers' meeting 12 days ago. But LOGANS RUN's second to Quedillac in the Ladies Open at the same meeting was a better effort and it's the latter who gets the vote today as he should again beat fourth Foynes Island. It's difficult to make a case for any of the others on recent form.
