Molly Round beat Arctic Flow over a shorter trip at Towcester last month but there shouldn't be much between the pair on today's revised terms and Grant Cann's mare has since fallen when favourite on her fencing debut. Time To Think has been put up 7lb for her win over 2m2f at Folkestone but should handle this quicker ground and can't be ignored, while Gouranga should be all the better for her run at Chepstow and has stamina in abundance. But there's probably more to come from SAULTY MAX, who ran well on her reappearance when runner-up to Ukrainian Star at Uttoxeter and is less exposed than many of her rivals.
