All five runners share the same official handicap mark and this looks tight on the face of it but both Santo Prince and and Reggae Star arrive badly out of sorts and are hard to fancy. THIS IS NICE looks the safest bet as she beat Watcheroftheskies by over five lengths at Brighton before finishing third on her handicap debut at Salisbury and is likely to adopt her usual front-running tactics. There's a danger that will play into the hands of Mandy's Boy, but the latter spoilt his chance when fractious at the start at Haydock on Saturday and is not guaranteed to run his race here on that evidence.
