MAGICAL SPEEDFIT has been kept busy but he can get back to winning ways this afternoon. A rather attractive mark of 62 lures us into selecting this course and distance winner and he can strike late for victory as he drops in grade. Elhamri is another plummeting down the weights and a resurgence would come as no surprise, whilst the duo of Maryolini and Best One both come into the race in better form and on their revised weights there shouldn't be much between the pair after their clash here last time where Maryolini prevailed. Watch the market for Orpen Lady who has been a total of 232/1 in three maiden starts but now enters handicaps off a subsequently low mark, whilst last year's winner Green Lagonda and Pocket's Pick are both better than they showed on their latest starts but neither wins often enough to truly recommend.
