Given Multilicious was still beaten 12 lengths when third at Wolverhampton in December, only Lexi's Dancer makes any appeal of those with race experience. But even she didn't show that much improvement when finishing fifth at Chester last time. Neither the five-year-old debutante Phoenix Joy nor Forest Philly stand out on breeding so this could be between the remaining newcomers Dodina and DRAHEM. The former is related to winners in Italy but James Fanshawe's filly is a half-sister to three winners and the latter gets the vote on her racecourse debut.
