SILKELLY is progressing at a rate of knots and followed her surprise victory at Thirsk in September by reappearing with an all-the-way success at Musselburgh last month. A 6lb rise doesn't look excessive and she can complete a hat-trick. Tussie Mussie looks a big threat as she's run really well over a mile on her last two starts, the latest on this track, and will be suited by the drop in trip. Bousatet made all for a convincing victory over this trip at Redcar and makes her handicap debut from what may turn out to be a very lenient mark. Elle Rebelle, who made a winning start to her career on this track, has been unfortunate in her subsequent runs and looks best of the remainder.
