None of these can be confidently ruled out but William Haggas' stable is absolutely flying and you'd imagine CROSS MY HEART would be ready for her seasonal reappearance. She won over 5f at Pontefract in September so the extra furlong here shouldn't be a problem and she should improve again this year. Burning Dawn also still has scope and should be winning soon but Spicy became disappointing in the autumn while Laudation and Duke Of Orange were beaten favourites last time, the latter only running at Chepstow on Friday. Wolverhampton fourth Wildcrafting could sneak into a place under a 7lb claimer however.
