A low grade handicap which looks very difficult to solve with many regressive types and others that are simply very moderate and inconsistent. NAMU is well weighted on the best of her form and was noted staying on well to take fourth spot at Warwick last time. The slight ease in the ground is the worry where she is concerned. Kyllachy Storm and Eleanor Eloise are others contenders. The first mentioned scored at Goodwood last time before finishing second on his last start off a 4lb higher mark. Eleanor Eloise is a lightly raced filly who has shown some level of ability worthy of making her a place contender at least. She makes her turf debut here while Fast Freddie looks attractively weighted but all of his career victories have come on the all-weather. Exit Strategy disappointed slightly last time but on his previous two outings would have to enter the equation. Our Fugitive with first time headgear applied could go well but will need to settle particularly over six furlongs. Namu is given the nomination to land it.
