Batgirl has three C&D victories to her credit and her young rider's claim is a bonus but Santarini has let her supporters down too often after a promising start to the campaign. CLUMBER PLACE has now won seven times including earlier this month at Newcastle where she ploughed through the mud to score over the trip. She's only 4lb higher and will love the conditions so gets the vote to follow up. Kashmiri Star is plating class and 6lb higher than for her only success while Aarti has run poorly when tackling soft ground. Caramelita could provide a threat as she has run well on testing ground here in the past and Freddie Tylicki was on board when she last won in June.
