Too Generous is starting to come down the weights but was still beaten more than 20 lengths when fifth over course and distance two weeks ago. This trip should suit Madame De Guise and she looks to have every chance if forgiven an uncharacteristically poor effort at Market Rasen last time. She'd beaten today's rival Ruby Glow over 2m at Chepstow previously and can confirm that form with the runner-up on slightly worse terms. COVE's second at Towcester in March gives her every chance and she can bounce back to form having struggled at Cheltenham subsequently. Gaye Memories was again found wanting in this grade at Stratford last time.
