Limegrove has become very disappointing and never got in a blow in a similar contest over 5f here last time when finishing behind runner-up Black Treacle, who is only fractionally worse off at the weights. Sleepy Joe is another who hasn't lived up to early expectations and he was beaten in a seller at Newmarket earlier this month so we'll stick with LADY CAPTAIN. She's only won a couple of sellers so far but arrives in form and this is clearly her best trip. Outback Lover tackles this lowly grade for the first time and has every chance on the form book but the step up to 6f is a worry.
