Verdict

One of ELLE REBELLE's two Turf victories came here in 2014. This is a dire contest and the top weight looks the one to be on if forgiven a miserable effort last time at Beverley - that was her first start since January. Wolverhampton runner-up Goal has run poorly over hurdles since but the three-year-olds Little Orchid and Britannia Boy must have some sort of chance and the former holds Pao De Acuca on the form book. Lucky Diva last won two years ago and needs further.
