Epernay has the past form to figure but is hard to recommend on the evidence of her more recent efforts while Sasheen went close on her latest start at Windsor, but that was over a mile and her best form has also been on fast ground. GLYN CEIRIOG has yet to win but she's gone very close on her last two starts in similar conditions and may find a bit more improvement in a first-time visor. Carinya ran her best race to date at Chepstow last time and makes most appeal of the remainder.
