ANA SHABABIYA went close again last time having won at Leicester before that. She may come out best stepping up in trip and is just preferred to See And Be Seen. The latter drops back in distance for this and scored over 1m6f here last month. Our Golden Girl found only one too good over track and trip on her latest start and makes more appeal than Hurricane John, whose recent placed effort came on the Fibresand at Southwell.
