A healthy list of dangers here with course winner CRAICATTACK just coming out on top at the main expense of Oasis Jade and Radio City. The selection comes here on the back of a fair effort in defeat at Beverley. The winner of that race Bould Mover has since gone on to bigger and better things and although a return to six furlongs may have been ideal, the feeling is that he can cope over this trip. Soft ground would be an unknown if any rain did fall however if he acts on it then he may be the winner. Point To Prove has one after an average run at Sandown last time, whilst that Yer Woman form also links Radio City who fared much better than Amy Weaver's runner and is rated more of a threat today. Oasis Jade doesn't look to be overburdened with a mark of 69 on her nursery bow and it will be interesting to see what the market makes of her as she has certainly shown some promise to date. Vilnius has been kept busy and she has taken her racing well; the handicapper has granted her a 4lb drop in the weights and she cannot be overlooked. Lucky Mellor tries the blinkers, whilst Watch Chain is open to more improvement now dropped back in trip with a mark of 55. An open heat, where we will side with Craicattack.
