It's a long way for Gay Kelleway to send one for a seller so Basle, who descends into the grade for the first time, has to be on the short-list. DOLLY PARTON won in this class last year and though she looked ready for a step-up in trip when staying on over 7f at Musselburgh last time this is a moderate event and she has scored over the minimum trip here. Mark Anthony hasn't been running well and the once useful Excusez Moi has been beaten out of sight on the all-weather this winter.
