Unbeaten in a couple of starts on Polytrack, GRASPED beat a previous winner to land the odds at Lingfield on her reappearance. Her half-sister scored over today's longer distance and the Cecil filly can land this raised only 3lb. Easter Sky was still beaten a long way despite finishing runner-up at Redcar a fortnight ago and Moccasin makes more appeal on his earlier second at Pontefract. But Ever Fortune looks a bigger threat as he won an apprentices' race at the latter track last week and escapes a penalty as a consequence. Cockney Class has tumbled down the weights and showed a bit more when placed at Wolverhampton last time.
