This one is hard to call as the unbeaten Pull The Plug hasn't raced since August and is 11lb higher for her reappearance and Hamilton winner Divine has been raised 7lb. Perfect Alchemy finished well ahead of Terhaab to score at Kempton but was beaten in better company on the Rowley course here last time. Little Shambles and Miss Atomic Bomb are maiden winners open to further progress and so is MUCH PROMISE. The latter landed the odds with ease at Kempton in November and John Gosden's filly should have improved during the interim to take this.
