In a race full of inconsistent types it seems folly to ignore the on-form FOREVER'S GIRL. Two wins and a near miss in the last three starts the filly won with plenty to spare over course and distance when last seen and a similar run will be more than enough. Titus Gent is capable on his day and off a lb lighter than when not beaten that far at Lingfield last time he has a chance. Emiratesdotcom wasn't beaten that far off this rating on his latest so might be value for the places off bottom weight while Dear Maurice is weighted to get the better of Titus Gent based on their last meeting so has to be on the list. A few in with chances but only if there is a rare poor run from Forever's Girl.
