Verdict

This is a step up for Worcester maiden winner G For Ginger but Maria's Benefit could give the form a boost in the opener. Kentford Heiress hasn't had much luck lately and is probably still a few pounds too high while Tsundoku is 7lb higher than when winning at Uttoxeter in July. Fit The Brief usually finds a way to get beat and Champagne To Go's stable hasn't hit peak form yet so we'll take a chance on AYLA'S EMPEROR. She won here last year and generally runs well on sharp tracks - she won't mind any give in the ground.
