The unexposed AMITOLA can rule the roost here. David Barron's filly ran well behind Dafeef at Newmarket, in the process showing that this mark of 85 holds no fears. Rule Of Nature is cosnistent but has found winning over any trip a bit hard to do, so a bigger threat might be Flaneur who is proven in testing ground. Coolminx has a little to find with the selection on their run at headquarters, Hairspray is 5lbs higher than her recent Kempton success, whilst Hoof It (entered Friday at Doncaster) and Midnight Martini will both appreciate the drop in grade today. At a price Basle could go well with her beating of Cape Kimberley at Leicester looking strong form for the grade.
