One win from 68 Flat runs. Thirty seven runs since last win in 2014. 50/1, fourth of 6 in handicap at Musselburgh (5f) 8 days ago. Easy to look elsewhere operating from out the weights.

Verdict

Nuns Walk got the victory her recent form deserved when scoring at Newcastle and has leading claims once again here from just 4lb higher in the ratings. However, preference is for the hat-trick seeking DIZZY G, who has thrived since joining the handicap ranks and Karl Burke's progressive filly can defy a 6lb penalty here. Hugo Palmer's C&D winner Power To Exceed can't be ignored, while Rotherhithe is interesting on her first outing for Richard Fahey having hit the frame on three starts for Robyn Bristland last year.

Verdict

The 3-y-os DIZZY G and Power To Exceed are clearly the most interesting. The former was readily on top when doubling her career tally at Newbury 7 days ago and she is narrowly preferred in her pursuit of the hat-trick. Rotherhithe on debut for Richard Fahey is also worth a second look now plying her trade in handicaps.
