It's hard to make a decent case for any of this bunch but AUNTIE MILDRED at least has some scope for improvement. She gets a token vote despite not having raced since May. Divertimenti scored here earlier this year and is back on a winning mark while Befortyfour finished ahead of Ishetoo when third at this track last week, though the former hasn't won since 2008. Lord Buffhead could prove best of the remainder if in the mood.
