Successful at Chelmsford, Sylvia's Mother found one too good under a penalty at Ffos Las earlier in the month but this looks a good opportunity for FINCH HATTON. The latter was beaten less than a length at Brighton on his debut and Ryan Moore’s presence in the saddle today will likely see him start favourite. Invincibella faded away in the closing stages at Leicester on her debut but still finished in front of Skating Away but Starchant has shown no progress since going close at Windsor back in July.
