Most of these can be given a chance of sorts including Natural Scenery, having her first start since placing over 1m2f at Sandown in July. Open The Red went close in a lower grade at Brighton last time and Miss Minuty was narrowly beaten over a shorter trip at Bath in August. Gawdawpalin drops in class and Testimonio represents last year’s winning yard. But MOHATEM should be sharper for his first start of the year when going close at Kempton last month and Owen Burrows’ colt may come out best.
