It's difficult to find one without a chance in this ultra-tough handicap. Sharqawiyah represents Luca Cumani and would be a threat to all if the going eases as her lone success came on soft ground at Nottingham. JADESNUMBERONE was thought good enough to run in Listed company last season and though not up to that class she looked a very progressive type when landing a Ffos Las maiden a couple of weeks ago. She makes her handicap debut on a lowly mark and is taken to complete the double. Rainbow Beauty was having her first start since November when a surprise winner at Sandown last week and with further progress guaranteed she is certainly on the short-list. Shesastar has never won beyond 7f but was battling on at the finish over that trip in a better race than this at York last time so could provide the main threat. Simply Shining has been going well from this mark and Samantha Bell's claim will aid her cause.
