IONWY gets another chance having been placed over C&D in her last two starts. She's been raised 5lb since October's close-up second but this looks less competitive. Sweet Ovation has claims on her earlier fourth over track and trip, while Reve Du Jour and Flaming Ferrari are others with the past form to figure. Chambles showed some improvement last time and wouldn't need to find much more to get involved in a poor handicap.
