Toolatetodelegate has been placed in five of her six outings since scoring here in October but is still 9lb higher and is arguably best over 5f. ZENOVIA has the inside berth, a course and distance victory to her name and the significant advantage of Simon Walker in the saddle. Archie Watson’s top weight reverts to her best trip and looks the one to beat. Dalness Express has to carry a penalty for his win a Class 7 event at Kempton but he’s definitely improved since returning from a lay-off. Malaysian Boleh has won twice around here and is slipping down the weights so could go well if getting the run of the race.
