My Meteor won at Ffos Las in August but has never reached a place in five all-weather starts. Ivestar won at Kempton in August but a 6lb higher mark looks enough to prevent another success while though Cri Na Mara sneaks in at the bottom of the weights she has been finding things tough since her maiden success over the C&D. PASSIONADA hasn't had much racing and was making her all-weather debut when making all until caught on the line by Gung Ho Jack over 6f here a month ago. She has more scope than most and is taken to go one better. Novabridge was raised 6lb after his Ffos Las victory and is looking a few pounds too high now.
