In a good quality contest LADY JANE DIGBY has the conditions to over turn form on last time conqueror Formation while Philatelist is also considered The pick is in receipt of a weight swing in her favour over Formation who beat her by just a head over course and distance last time. Her rival is a little bit of a character, which is another way of saying he's difficult, so all in all it looks more in favour Lady Jane. Philatelist has form to overturn on the selection after finishing well back from her last time and the handicapper may just still be in charge while Baylini always runs a good race and looks set for prize money again but Lady Jane Digby should take the biggest cut.
