Chant and Rainbow Beauty set the standard on official ratings but it's not a very high one and both have had plenty of chances without success. HIGH TIME TOO makes more appeal as she won't have to improve much on her debut second at Lingfield to get involved - Hugo Palmer's filly gets the nod. Lucky Black Star is another likely improver going on his recent third over C&D and it would be no surprise to see a much better effort from Rainestorm. Admirals Walk had shown steady progress before his latest poor run and looks best of the remainder.
