Queen Olivia got off the mark over 2m at Southwell last month but was beaten out of sight on her only previous try over this trip. There are no stamina doubts surrounding IRON BUTTERFLY and she makes more appeal having run well on the Flat since finishing third to the classy Polly Peachum at Warwick. She beat a subsequent dual winner over this distance at Doncaster in Doncaster and still looks fairly treated. Mini Muck is usually thereabouts while Newton Abbot second My Legal Lady might have place claims again along with Lady Charisma.
