Some useful mares have won this in recent years and Lily Waugh clearly has plenty of ability, beating a well-regarded sort over a longer trip here on her reappearance. Anthony Honeyball also runs nicely-bred newcomer Rouquine Sauvage. Perfect Romance was second at Stratford last month while Georgea was third over course and distance in May and Centoria won here on her debut only to lose the race in the stewards' room. A Shade Of Bay and Salford Lady showed promise last season but so did PARTY GIRLS. She hasn't run for 18 months but is out a mare who won over both hurdles and fences and should be worth following this winter.
