Lisiere showed promise over 5f in a couple of runs in the autumn while Tooley Woods was second over 7f at Wolverhampton in February, though more is needed here. It should be third-time lucky for TRAIL OF TEARS, who didn't look entirely straightforward when beaten at odds-on at Wolverhampton last month but clearly has ability and can make the most of her experience. Finesse can improve on her Kempton sixth while a market move for newcomers Sherry Cherie or Toodeloo would be interesting.
