Formscan - MA BELLE NOIRE struck with something in hand over C&D earlier this month and, given the authority of that success, a 7lb rise in the ratings doesn't appear insurmountable. Blue Sans has upped her game this year and she is likely to be in the shake-up once again now only 5lb higher than when completing a hat-trick at Southwell. Artemis Angel arrives in good heart and also enters calculations on the return to 2m7f.
