Always Fabulous has yet to threaten but Prom Dress finished closer over course and distance last time. Wakeup Little Suzy disappointed when sent off favourite at Lingfield three weeks ago but it's too soon to write her off while Golden Causeway may well have improved since her latest start in September. Newcomer Viva L'inghilterra is related to winners and should be noted but the vote goes to WOTABOOTY, fourth on her debut behind a couple of subsequent winners and helped by an apprentice's 7lb claim today.
