None of these have looked like winning so far this year with Ripley failing to figure since finishing second at Goodwood on last season’s debut. She has a bit to find on these terms with WILBURY TWIST, who has placed on a couple of occasions without threatening the winner but came up against higher rated horses when third at Wolverhampton last time. Be My Angel finished closer at Goodwood last time though that was back in May and Arctic Haze may improve past her.
