Verdict

Flying Applause finally took advantage of his tumble down the weights when scoring over 6f at Wolverhampton last week. He could go close again here but his previous efforts on the Fibresand don't inspire confidence. Stablemate Exceedingly Good returns from a lay-off, while Errigal Lad's losing run stretches back to 2008. C&D winner It's A Mans World looks on too high a mark judged on his recent placed efforts, so a tentative vote goes to BOLD DIVA. She won this race last year and should be spot on now after a couple of recent runs at Kempton.
