Plenty of guesswork involved here, but FLAMING FERRARI is Jimmy Fortune's only ride of the meeting and we'll take the hint. The former was making her handicap debut when fifth over C&D last month and, with more to come from Peter Chapple-Hyam's filly today, she gets the nod as she has less than a length to find with Dicky Mint on latest running and did have another of today's rivals in Sweet Ovation behind. The latter beat Very Best Blade at Chepstow back in August, while Auntie Kathryn had Emma Jean behind when fourth here last time and could prove best of the rest.
