LADY PLATINUM CLUB claimed a place in a classified race here three weeks ago and finally looks set to record a belated first win. Gypsy Rider won at Chepstow in September and would go close with a similar effort here while Mey Blossom has a chance dropped 6lb since finishing fourth at Beverley in the same month. Besty is struggling to end his long losing run but Music Festival finished a bit closer over C&D last time and makes more appeal.
