HEPWORTH found one too good when sent off favourite on her return to action at Lingfield. Her debut effort at Doncaster in October is the best form on offer and John Gosden's filly gets another chance here. Shirazz makes her belated debut and the half-sister to an all-weather winner is worth noting while it would be no surprise if Golden Share improves on his debut fifth stepping up in trip. Biggins Boy is preferred to Wesleydale and Ice Tres of those that have been running in bumpers.
