After completing a Polytrack double, Sylvia Pankhurst found a much better handicap at Newmarket beyond her and this is more her grade. Jontleman landed a seller on the Polytrack at Lingfield then followed up on Turf at the same track though he only had three rivals to beat. PERFECT WORDS has gone 15 starts without winning but has gone close on several occasions, including over this track and trip, so today could be his turn. Deepest Blue and Storma Norma are also maidens though not without chances while Cracking Choice, yet another without a victory, has dropped to his lowest ever mark.
