Ealain Aibrean has decent claims on her placed efforts on the all-weather but is a frustrating type and Jolly Red Jeanz may well improve past her as the latter finished runner-up over track and trip on her penultimate start. But BLACKE FOREST makes most appeal in this given Bill Muir's filly finished seven lengths clear of the rest when second at Kempton on her racecourse debut last week and won't have to improve much on that to come out best. Parkhill Star and Harboured are harder to fancy on what they've shown so far.
