QEETHAARA put a rare poor run behind her when winning for the third time in four starts at Kempton last month with the re-opposing Cut The Cackle behind. She looks up to defying a 3lb rise in her current form and gets the vote to go in again. Midas Moment, Zing Wing and Ssafa have a shout on their best form of last year but all three are making their seasonal debuts today and the selection looks a safer option. Bold Ring has done all her winning over shorter trips though she's gone close over today's distance before and is not completely dismissed.
