Driving Miss Suzie has been beaten at Ffos Las since getting the better of HI HO SILVIA and Glan Lady over this C&D at the start of the month. There shouldn't be much between the trio on today's revised terms but Neil King's mare may have given her front-running rivals too much rope that day and can come out on top on this occasion. Ardesia took advantage of a lenient mark to score at Cartmel last month but couldn't follow up at the same track four days later and has been put up a further 4lb since. The strong-travelling Pete finds little off the bridle but didn't stay 3m at Hexham last time and, along with the returning Spice Bar, looks the pick of the remainder.
