William Wordsworth is better handicapped over fences and hasn't been running particularly well. Khan Tengri has struggled from his new mark after scoring at Downpatrick while Luimneach Abu is still a maiden and hasn't run since October. Foot Soldier has had very little experience and makes his handicap debut so it's MONCHERIE who gets the nod as she was sent chasing when last seen in the autumn and scored at Tramore, though she's better handicapped over timber.
