TRUSTING is holding her form which is more than can be said for most of the opposition. She scored at Kempton last time and gets the token vote to confirm running with third placed Men Don't Cry. Forzarzi has been placed over 6f here on his last couple of starts and Community landed a double in August before being beaten out of sight at Chepstow last time. Mack's Sister, Double Carpet and Royal Selection all have the past form to figure but arrive out of sorts.
