Severiano has been placed in six of his 10 starts and has a chance in this. Specialty must go close if she reproduces her latest second over course and distance but Southwell runner-up Refuse Colette has yet to show much on Turf. AVIDLY has been taking on better opposition with mixed results but the French import was only beaten a length at Lingfield in December and her latest seventh at Newmarket wasn't a bad effort in the context of today's race. She may be the value, though Aomen Rock has been eased in the weights and can't be ignored.
