Verdict

A couple of these stand out on their turf form. Really Lovely has a couple of placed efforts to her credit, but has shown little improvement in handicaps of late so MINNIE DIVA is just preferred. She finished strongly to take fourth at Haydock on her debut in September and this testing surface should bring her stamina into play. Much better was expected from Dora's Gift over C&D last time, but she could only finish a well-beaten third, while Little Red Minx will need to step up on her latest run at Lingfield if she's to trouble the principals. The newcomer Medlaur could prove best of the remainder.
