Possibly the more difficult of the two divisions. The three at the head of the weights need to put modest latest runs behind them and it's worth looking elsewhere. Lee Side Lady has a decent form claim but hasn't been seen since last June whilst Invicta Lake also returns from a considerable absence. With so many question marks, it will be interesting to see how the market speaks but Millie Wonnacott is proving decent value for her claim and therefore a chance is taken with the aforementioned LEE SIDE LADY in the hope she is ready to roll as her consistency could prove decisive. Course and distance winner, Fenlons Court, is quite nicely handicapped and not ruled out.
