Verdict

Stay With Me took a step back in the right direction when third over 5 1/2f here, but FAITHFUL JUSTICE has been competing in decent allowance races and is fancied to take advantage of having her sights lowered. Hopes Angel had Pyrite Blue Magna in arrears when third over track and trip, finishing just behind a subsequent winner.

Verdict

HANDSUP MONEYDOWN has been struggling to get properly competitive in slightly stronger claimers but it will be disappointing if he doesn't go really close in this company. Put It Back Jack is a real model of consistency and will be no pushover, nor will Astro Jak, who changed hands after romping to victory over 6f here.

Verdict

Very little separated LONNIE BELL and Bright N Shine when they took minor honours over a mile here recently, but the former had previously beaten her rival by a little bit further and is taken to confirm her superiority. Lainey Luck wasn't far behind them in fourth last time, with Marilyn Bordeaux and Real Deal Lady also capable of figuring in the finish.

FAST JUSTICE has hit the crossbar on her last couple of appearances and is versatile in regard to distance so the drop from a mile isn't a problem. She is preferred to Dixie Lover, who beat Awesome Maddi C to the runner-up spot in a 5f race landed by a subsequent winner.
