MARKSBURY wasn't beaten far in fourth over C&D last time and Becky Brisbourne had a decent strike rate at this course last year. She gets the vote ahead of Gallantry, who is only 1lb higher than when scoring at Lingfield in November. Aggbag finished closer last time and should go well again, while Pacey Outswinger should do better with a recent outing at this track under her belt. Vitznau and Merrjanah, who has gone close under today's amateur before, make most appeal of the remainder.
