SANDY COVE is favoured at the weights and gets the token vote in a really poor contest after placing at Kempton last time. Petersboden has also made the frame on the all-weather of late and Highly Likely has a shout on his third at Kempton in March. Cherry Princess actually won a race last season, but that was over 2m, while Zeteah and Up Hill Battle's are lightly-raced and won't have to improve much to get involved in this company.
