Aliante is getting no closer despite slipping down the weights and Fisher has struggled off higher marks since a victory at Beverley in May. FLEETING FASHION also won at Beverley on her handicap debut and is taken to defy a 5lb rise here with further progress expected. She's worse off with both runner-up Red Tyke and fourth placed Oops Caroline but the latter pair never looked like catching the selection and Flashman looks a bigger threat on his latest third at Pontefract. Gucci D'Oro was well beaten in a Newmarket maiden last time but could finish a lot closer in this company.
