DARING DAMSEL finished last in soft ground at Warwick last week but has gone close on a couple of previous occasions over C&D. She's getting plenty of weight from higher rated rivals in this and can make it count. Spanish Plume and Spartan Spirit both drop in class and can figure though Alshazah never got involved when tried at this level last month. Brighton winner Renegotiate has claims on his all-weather bow and Ballyheigue won his maiden over C&D.
