This has been run three times and odds-on chances have won them all. Today's market is likely to heavily feature MUNFALLET and Passing By with preference for the former. He was trained by Richard Hannon last season and, though beaten when long odds-on at Kempton, his overall form looks just superior of that of his main rival, who represents the Hannon yard but was disappointing when strongly fancied here in December. Pearl Princess made an encouraging debut behind two better fancied rivals at Southwell and with that under her belt looks a threat but the remainder have shown little and will need to step up.
