GOLDMADCHEN looks the one to be on as she is extremely versatile as to distance and ground and scored over a mile on heavy going at Pontefract last week. She's won on the all-weather in France and raced over hurdles so neither track nor trip should pose a problem and she is unpenalised for last week's victory in an apprentice race. Schmooze found 1m6f testing her stamina at Catterick last time and this is more like her trip and though King's Road has yet to score on Polytrack he's been going well enough over the C&D to get involved. Visions Of Johanna will have needed his latest run after a break and is just 1lb higher than when scoring over the C&D in March.
