Mad Ginger Alice went close at Wolverhampton earlier this month and has the best form of those with experience. However, that's not saying much as the winner has let the form down since. Royal Selection has failed to improve on her debut fourth at Salisbury and Pacific Reach is dropping back in distance after a dismal effort at Bath last time. It could pay to take a chance on a newcomer and, given CHASIN' RAINBOWS is related to a couple of winners including C&D scorer and stablemate Lady Lam, she gets a tentative vote on her debut.
