It's difficult to have much confidence in any of these. PARTNER'S GOLD made the frame over track and trip before finishing a modest sixth on the Fibresand and he gets a token vote. Mucky Molly has every chance on an earlier second at Kempton while Very First Blade has been threatening a return to winning ways of late. Sam Spade was rated much higher when scoring at Kempton at this time last year and Vhujon is capable of getting involved if on a going day.
