Hard to be confident about any of these but Looks Like Rain has form over today's trip, though this looks a stiffer task than her recent second at Beverley and SILVER SAMBA is preferred. Andrew Balding's filly has improved for the step up to 1m4f and a chance is taken there's more to come after a recent second at Newmarket. Filatore and Kashgar may also improve for the greater test of stamina while Dalmo won over hurdles last month and is another to consider.
