Having played up beforehand, Top Totti was always playing catch-up on her chasing bow at Fakenham. She's capable of better but her attitude introduces a note of caution. MOLLY'S A DIVA has won three bumpers and recorded a second win over hurdles at Ffos Las earlier this month. Her yard does well with novice chasers and this looks a good opportunity to make a winning start over the larger obstacles. Churchtown Love has won between the flags and is also interesting but Rattlin was well beaten at Sedgefield when tried over fences a year ago.
