Mia's Anthem has been a regular visitor to these shores this year and won over 3m at Uttoxeter last month. A follow-up isn't out of the question, despite a 9lb weight rise. Discoverie had Top Billing behind when second over 2m2f here earlier this month and is another to consider. Fling Me was in touch when unseating his rider in that race and may also be capable of better while Texas Rose makes a swift reappearance after finishing second at Uttoxeter on Thursday. As well as Mia's Anthem, Noel Kelly also runs INDUBITABLY and he could be the one to beat if taking the view that his Cartmel reappearance was a pipe-opener. His form earlier in the year was decent in the context of this race.
