BRAMSHILL LASS scored by over three lengths at Kempton last time and should confirm running with Jezza. She gets the vote to follow-up as collateral form also gives her the beating of Where's Susie and Natural High. Norfolk Sky was still beaten five lengths when runner-up over track and trip earlier while Yes Chef has something to prove over today's trip judged on his poor form over hurdles. Swift Blade is interesting stepping up in distance and may well figure if lasting home.
