OUTBACK failed to threaten the winner despite making the frame on his last couple of starts. But this is a really poor contest and he gets the token vote if producing a similar effort today. Maid Of Silk, Princesse Fleur and Nicky Nutjob share similar ratings over jumps but none of them have won on the Flat while Fitzwilly was still beaten 11 lengths when second at Nottingham last time. Capriska has yet to win and has crept back up the weights after a couple of placed efforts at Yarmouth.
