RUFFLED didn't enjoy the best of trips when racing wide at Lingfield last time but is the one to beat on earlier form for the Gosden yard. She's since joined Rae Guest and should take care of today's rivals if running anywhere near her second at Yarmouth back in August. The rest with experience have shown no worthwhile form so far with Colour My World's fifth in soft ground at Haydock the best effort. That leaves the newcomer Turnbuckle as the biggest threat and any strong support in the betting for the half-brother to a Group One winner in Australia could prove significant.
