Deft (10) – A winner of two of her past three in good fashion. Last start camped just behind the speed and let down well to score at Canterbury.

Girl In A Million (10) - Looked the part in a trial then took that form to Tamworth bolting in as a short price favourite. Building a good overall record. This is a step up however racing well.
Smart Amelia (5) – First up for new stable. Recent trial was sound and form last preparation is more than good enough to be in the finish here. Does struggle to win is the only query.
