Jive Talking began this season where she left off the last when runner-up at Nottingham on her handicap debut. She should go close again while Greenview Paradise is another regularly placed though never threatened the winner when second at Chester and steps up in trip here. Conistone is also looking for her first win and is 4lb lower than when fourth here in May but ROSEMAY (NAP) was beaten only a short-head over track and trip last time and she gets the nod to go one better in first-time headgear with Paul Hanagan taking over the reins.
