Witchy Woman only won a claimer at Thirsk but this isn't much better as Strictly Glitz is also a plater and was beaten in a seller at the same track last time. TWO SHADES OF GREY didn't get the run of the race when sent off favourite at Hamilton and this extra furlong certainly looks to be within his range. He's fancied to open his account today as Chookie's Lass disappointed at Newcastle last time and Sakhalin Star is thoroughly exposed.
