MONTEAMIATA is the only one of these with a recent win. She was successful at Lingfield in July and may prove good enough in this unappealing contest. Flowing Clarets needs to reverse running at Lingfield with the selection while thugh Whitecrest is on a winning mark she keeps finding at least one too good. One Big Surprise scored over track and trip at the start of the season and Pretty Bubbles slips further down the weights but Storm Cry has only won a maiden so far in 17 attempts.
