MATROW'S LADY has been a beaten favourite in both starts since winning at Fontwell in December but she'll handle the ground and her form still looks a cut above that of her rivals. She's the one to beat though Giveitachance has shown signs of ability and Gross Prophet has won this season, though seems to reserve his best for Chepstow. Pick of the remainder may be Politelysed, who ran her best race so far at Catterick last month and is only a pound higher here.
