Goldmadchen has been in fine form and landed a double over track and trip earlier in the year. She looks sure to be in the mix once again and finished ahead of Well Owd Mon, Impeccability and Mazij when runner-up at this track last month. Well Owd Mon wasn't beaten far on that occasion and can make the frame, but a chance is taken on HERBALIST. Sean Curran's charge has yet to race over today's distance but went close over 1m3f at Kempton on his penultimate start and can race off a 2lb lower mark today.
