An interesting sprint handicap now with one or two hoping to book their tickets for bigger events later in the year and the vote goes to SIRENUSE ahead of Doctor Parkes and Igoyougo. The selection is very interesting as she holds an Epsom Dash entry. She really seems to be improving as her latest victory at Thirsk shows. She showed great speed that day to get over and bag the favoured rail. Her second last run has also been seriously franked by Hawkeyethenoo, who won a big sprint handicap at Newmarket. The Bryan Smart stable are also amongst the winners and this filly is of real interest today. Doctor Parkes is another horse in the line-up with a big entry as he is hoping to go on to Ascot for the Wokingham after this. His recent form is decent too; he had no chance at Chester with the draw but still ran respectably. He put in another solid effort when second at Thirsk over six furlongs. A strongly run five seems to suit best and he should get that today. However, he looks held by the selection on a form line through Discanti but he should go well. Igoyougo is another with solid form but also looks held by the selection on the Discanti form line. Royal Intruder is another to note in a nice race.
