Sacco D'oro has been thereabouts over further lately and must have place claims again without being quite good enough to threaten likely principals BOSAMCLIFF and Lean Burn. Preference is for the former who showed all of her old sparkle to foil the gamble on Ma Fein at Uttoxeter last month. She did finish behind Lean Burn over C&D earlier but was still on the comeback trail that day and is better off at the weights now. Barry Leavy's charge has won at Uttoxeter and finished second at Market Rasen since, however, while Truckers Princess is capable of a decent showing off her current mark.
