None of these set the pulse racing though BRAZILIAN CLOWN went close at Southwell last month and has been placed again on a couple of occasions since. It could be his turn today and he gets the token vote. Grievous Angel's victory came over a shorter trip on soft ground and some of the less exposed types may improve past her including Marmot Bay, Sad But True and Mujadora. Wordsaplenty has failed to threaten since scoring at Catterick last month, however, and Moonlit Dancer looks to be treading water at present.
