These events are often chock full of runners but GIOVANNA has dropped down the weights and we will give her a chance to redeem herself at what are likely to be juicy odds. Winsley Hill is a dour stayer who has been kept busy over the autumn. Asturienne is not without quirks despite evidence of ability. Am I Blue has been a controversial figure. She has gone up another 5lb for a second at Taunton though should act on the prevailing going. She will attempt to reverse form with Detroit Red, who is on a hat-trick. Cinderella Rose has taken her chance in some fair bumpers in the past though was turned over at odds of 2/5 at Towcester last month. Naughty Naughty has yet to prove she stays though Tony McCoy is a highly positive name to have in the jockeys column.
