Secret Vision is selected over Nilsatisoptimum and Jennverse. There may also be more to come from Crystal Mystic, who at least knows what it takes to win a race and looks worth a try in this grade. Jennverse caught the eye staying on late in a maiden at Folkestone last time she raced and would be a force top be reckoned with if posting a similar effort today. The daughter of Opening Verse does have a long absence to overcome though and need to conclusively prove her fitness. It can be worth chancing that the switch to an artificial surface will bring the best out of Nilsatisoptimum, who dropped a significant hint of ability when he finished third at Ayr in August. This is a different proposition but Michael Mullineaux's charge should not be underestimated; especially at the likely odds. However, Secret Vision has fewer questions to answer than most, as she goes well on the All Weather, is better than her last few outings would have you believe and, as a previous winner at Kempton, she has the most solid profile on offer in this company.
