Both Fiction Or Fact and Loyal Master finished fourth on their latest starts and appear to have the best form in the book, but this longer trip on a stiff track should play to the strengths of FLOSSE, who is Jean-Pierre Guillambert's only booked ride of the meeting. She went close in a modest maiden at Newcastle last time and her half-sister won over a mile as well as over hurdles later in her career - Ed Walker's filly is expected to show a big improvement with stamina brought into play. Flurry Of Hands is another who should appreciate the extra distance.
