A few of these are starting to run out of chances but Zefooha has won at Hexham and Sedgefield this season and Brian Toomey's claim will aid the mare's chances. Loden is now tried in blinkers but is difficult to predict and Amazing Star has gone right off the boil since landing a gamble at Uttoxeter in November. Kingdom Of Munster isn't improving and Flat winners Muwalla and Thunderstruck have shown little over timber so far but there may be more to come from THE RIGHT TIME following her second at Chepstow and Tony Carroll's filly gets a tentative vote in a low-key finale.
