The finale looks quite trappy and the narrow vote is given to BLACK DAHLIA over Millie's Rock and Spring Goddess. The selection ran well enough on her return from a five month break at Wolverhampton last time and she should be absolutely primed for this. She is a likeable filly and with conditions in her favour she looks to have a strong chance. Millie's Rock raced far too keenly at Lingfield last time over today's trip which looks well short of her best. It is interesting that she is tried again over a mile today though and she might be worth a look in the market. Spring Goddess would have claims on her win here back in October over 1m2f, but she has since been a bit disappointing. Deep Winter is better over further than this, and we will stick with Black Dahlia who looks the most likely winner.
