Timeform on Countess Trenton

#3 MR GREENLIGHT - Vaal R6 (13:45 GMT)

MR GREENLIGHT has been given a chance by the handicapper, now on a lower mark than when beaten only narrowly here in November, and he looks sure to play a hand in the finish if reproducing anything like that sort of form. Norland is feared most ahead of Marshall Foch.

#10 COUNTESS TRENTON - Vaal R7 (14:20 GMT)

COUNTESS TRENTON arrives here on a long losing run, but she has acquitted herself well in a stronger grade than this recently and could be the way to go in an open heat. Tahitian Orana, who hasn't been beaten far in two handicap starts to date, and Magic Mila head the list of dangers.

#5 CRAZY CHARLIE - Vaal R8 (14:55 GMT)

CRAZY CHARLIE has had more chances than most in this line-up, but he looks to hold sound claims on his best form, including when fourth over a slightly longer trip here last time, and is fancied to belatedly get off the mark at the expense of Ideal Wolff and Ideal Day.
