Jean Fleming won on her debut under Rules at Lingfield but was then beaten at short odds under a penalty at Towcester and may struggle to give 7lb to DEFINITE RUBY here. Nicky Henderson's mare looks the form pick on her half-length second to Eleven Fifty Nine at Doncaster, though has been beaten twice since when well backed. Mistral Reine ran her best race so far over hurdles here last time but needs more to get off the mark in this.
