Doncosaque has been dropped 4lb for his recent run at Newmarket which gives him a good chance but he is yet to impress on grass and preference is for FALLEN IN LOVE who is selected ahead of Ultimate. The trainer states that the selection will only run if the ground is suitable, which looking at her form so far would suggest quick underfoot conditions. She was a Haydock winner when last seen in September and an opening mark for 77 in handicaps may prove to be lenient, the form of the yard is good and she can lead them home. Barwell Bridge was also a winner when last seen and Sylvester Kirk's charge is open to more improvement after that maiden win at Kempton, whilst Fong's Alibi is considered following a two-month break to refresh him after some decent all-weather runs. Princability and Morning Sir Alan are both consistent and cheek-pieces may bring about some improvement with the latter, whilst Bagber has also gone close of late but will only take part one assumes if there is a bit of cut in the ground. This looks a tricky race, where Ultimate, Nawaadi and recent runner-up Brunston need to be paid close consideration, but for the winner we will plump for Fallen In Love.
