Arrivaderci and Darcy May have course experience, but neither have looked like winning and a chance is taken that BLAUGRANA will handle the surface. She showed promise on her debut when fifth at Lingfield and normal improvement should see her add to John Gosden's impressive strike rate at this track. Diamond Finesse has failed to match her debut second at Windsor in a couple of starts since and the inconsistent Romany Spirit finished last at Kempton in October having gone close at the same track before that.
