Global Leader raced with the choke out over course and distance last week but never saw another rival and won easily. The penalty might be a problem in this higher grade however. Sewn Up has been in decent form over 6f here recently but has come up short when tried over this longer trip in the past. SCHOTTISCHE is possibly better over further but has won over track and trip and a strong pace is guaranteed. She may be the one to beat on her latest third at a higher level as Mont Signal disappointed at Southwell after winning here previously.
