DANCE FOR GEORGIE failed to figure on the Fibresand at Southwell on her return from a lay-off but she'll be better suited by this faster surface judged on a short-head defeat at Catterick in September so gets the vote. Darnathean improved for the step up to 1m2f at Kempton last time so Lastkingofscotland makes more appeal over today's trip having slipped down the weights. Ad Vitam is worth another try at 7f having won over a shorter trip here and Medam has a shout off her current mark.
