Ace Master won over 7f here recently but CARLOVIAN makes more appeal over today’s distance. The latter was beaten only a head at Newcastle last week having won over track and trip last month with Red Stripes behind. The latter has also fallen victim to Storm Lightning here and Mark Brisbourne’s charge went in again at Kempton a fortnight ago while Social Butterfly was narrowly beaten at Newcastle last time and is another to consider. Little Miss Lola’s only win so far came on the all-weather and she was placed at Hamilton when last in action back in July.
