Draw: 8 (10 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 5/1

She returns from a 15-week break, is doing well at home and is in a good space heading into this race. The daughter of Trippi may need this outing but a positive run is expected. This race will bring her on nicely.

Winning Form Comment: Rested 15 wks. Best MR:109. Loves this distance. Chance if fit and well.

This is a competitive field and she has work to do at the weights. The daughter of Canford Cliffs is doing well at home and she tries the blinkers for the first time. We are hoping for a positive effort and to see her finish in the placings.

Winning Form Comment: Blinkers ON. Best MR:88. Fair latest against males. Gets blinkers fitted and trainer’s only runner.
