Norwegian Reward is upped 5lb for his recent C&D victory but won a shade cosily and looks sure to be in the mix again. Chella Thriller opened her account over track and trip last time and remains open to further progress but so does ALEZANNA. The Wolverhampton winner finished a close-up third on her handicap bow and, with probably more to come on only her fourth start, she's just preferred in a tight contest. Daniel Thomas won a seller here last month but should have done better on his latest start and the remainder are even harder to fancy.
